BP manager testifies at trial over Gulf oil spill

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A trial designed to assign fault to the companies involved in the deadly Deepwater Horizon disaster has resumed with testimony of a BP manager who supervised two rig managers indicted on manslaughter charges.

John Guide was BP's wells team leader for the well that blew out in the Gulf in 2010. He was the first witness to testify Monday as the trial entered its eighth week.

Guide supervised two rig managers who have been indicted on manslaughter charges in the deaths of 11 workers during the April 20, 2010 explosion.

U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier is hearing testimony without a jury. Barring a settlement, Barbier could decide how much more money BP and its contractors should pay for their roles in the nation's worst offshore oil spill.
