Kyle Rittenhouse Jury To Deliberate For Second Day

Reuters reports:

The jury in the Wisconsin murder trial of Kyle Rittenhouse will deliberate for a second day on Wednesday, attempting to reach a consensus on whether to convict or acquit the teenager for killing two men and wounding a third during racial justice protests last year.

The jury of 7 women and 5 men from Kenosha, Wisconsin, deliberated for about eight hours on Tuesday. They sent two notes to the judge, neither giving any indication of the substance of their discussions on the first day.

The jury has to weigh a large body of evidence, including surveillance and cellphone videos, and is being asked to consider a total of four lower-level charges in addition to the five main criminal counts. Rittenhouse faces life in prison on the most serious count.
