The jury members will return on Friday morning to resume their work.

Even as the jury weighed the evidence, two mistrial requests from the defense hung over the case, with the potential to upend the verdict if the panel were to convict Rittenhouse.

One of those requests asks the judge to go even further and bar prosecutors from retrying him.

Also Thursday, Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder banned MSNBC after police said they briefly detained a man who had followed the jury bus and may have tried to photograph jurors.

Before deliberations, Schroeder read the jury some 36 pages of instructions on the charges and the laws of self-defense.

Rittenhouse could get life in prison if convicted of the most serious charge against him. »
