The case went to the anonymous jury after the judge, in an unusual move, allowed Rittenhouse himself to play a minor role in the selection of the final panel of 12 people whose job was to decide his fate.
A jury of 12 people will begin a second day of deliberations Wednesday morning in Kyle Rittenhouse’s homicide trial for the fatal shooting of two people and wounding of another during last year’s unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
A 12-person jury has begun deliberating whether Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager who killed two people and injured a third, should be convicted of murder.

LowKeyLawyer He wasn’t acting in self defense. He intentionally provoked that crowd of people when he put out that fire. The first man was unarmed so his use of that illegally possessed AR-15 excessive force. The crowd tried to apprehend an active shooter and Kyle shoot his way out.
