Former captain of the Costa Concordia luxury cruise ship Francesco Schettino leaves after a closed-door hearing for the 2012 grounding off Tuscany that killed 32 people, in Grosseto, Italy, Monday, April 15, 2013. An Italian court is mulling whether to hand down indictments against the captain and some crew of the Costa Concordia cruise ship for the 2012 grounding off Tuscany that killed 32 people. Prosecutors want Capt. Francesco Schettino to stand trial for alleged manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning the ship before all passengers had been evacuated. They want four other crew members and a Costa manager to face charges of having botched the emergency.
