US actor Robert Blake has been found liable for the killing of his wife and ordered to pay $30m (17m) in damages to her four children. The 72-year-old star of the 1970s TV Baretta series was acquitted of the murder of Bonny Lee Bakley at a criminal trial in March. But a civil jury has now ruled he was liable for his wife's death in 2001.

Ms Bakley, 44, was found shot dead inside her husband's car after the pair had dined at a Los Angeles restaurant. After eight days of deliberations, the jury decided by a vote of 10-2 that Blake had "intentionally caused the death" of Ms Bakley. The actor made no comment as he left the court.
Ms Bakley's children brought the civil case of wrongful death, seeking to make Blake liable for their mother's death and to win damages.

The degree of proof in a civil case is lower than in a criminal case.

Did you know what Blake said when he was asked why there were gun stains on his hands? He said he missed his childhood and regularly plays with cap guns and if that makes him weird, he retorted "label me".
