On Aug. 25, 2020, Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz.
Activists opposed to the jury's acquittal gathered in several cities across the country, including Chicago, New York and Oakland. Authorities in Portland declared a riot.
Psychology experts say like any jury, the 12 men and women tasked with deciding the Kyle Rittenhouse case come into the courtroom with their own biases that affect how they view evidence.
Several legal experts say putting Rittenhouse on the stand was effective for the defense and agree that prosecutors have struggled at times to make their case. Closing arguments are expected Monday.
Legal experts say the jury's verdict could come down to how well the prosecution made its central argument that Rittenhouse was the aggressor and not just acting in self-defense, as he claims.
Nearly three hours of testimony came from a video producer for a right-wing news site who filmed Rittenhouse in Kenosha, Wis. Prosecutors also called two men who wanted to "protect" businesses.
Rittenhouse faces multiple felony charges of homicide and recklessly endangering the safety of others, along with one misdemeanor count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a minor.
The lawsuit alleges that authorities in Kenosha not only knew that armed vigilantes planned to patrol the protest attended by Black Lives Matter supporters, but also encouraged their participation.
Prosecutors asked the judge last week to issue a new warrant and raise Rittenhouse's bail by $200,000, arguing that he violated conditions of his release by not alerting them to his change of address.
The suspect is accused of shooting three protesters in Kenosha, Wis., during unrest in the city following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Two of his alleged victims were killed.
