Witness to RFK assassination says FBI report 'devastating,' says she told investigators she heard 12-14 shots

The man who assassinated Robert F. Kennedy Jr. may soon get a new trial. A federal court could rule any day now on a challenge to Sirhan Sirhan's conviction, based partially on a theory that there was another shooter.

It's a theory bolstered by Nina Rhodes-Hughes, a fundraiser for RFK. She was at the Ambassador Hotel on the night he was gunned down in 1968. Nina not only heard shots from two different directions, but she says there were more than eight. Sirhan's gun could only hold eight bullets, and his defense team is expected to use her testimony in its court filings.

Nina talks to Soledad this morning about the shooting, and explains why it was 'devastating' when she saw an FBI report didn't include her claims.
