Detroit Front Porch Murder Trial: Closing Arguments, Jury Deliberations

Hey folks,

Today saw the closing arguments of the murder trial of Detroit homeowner Theodore Wafer in the front porch shooting death of Renisha McBride in the early morning hours of November 2, 2013.

Immediately following closing the jury was given their final instructions, and sent into deliberations. With two white female alternates chosen, the 12 members of the jury now consist of seven men and five women, and eight whites and four blacks.

The closing arguments followed a pattern of the prosecution closing first, followed by the defense, and finally the prosecution speaking last to rebut the defense closing.
