BROOKLYN - A judge ruled today that a videotape will be allowed as evidence in the trial of a teen accused of killing radio reporter George Weber last year in Brooklyn.

John Katehis, who was 16 at the time, says on the tape that Weber was stabbed as the two struggled over a knife.

Judge Jon Firetog also said a written statement signed by Katehis and a witness who picked him out of a lineup and a photo array can be used at trial.
