The trial of CMPD officer Randall Kerrick wrapped up Tuesday after more than two weeks of testimony.

The jury started its deliberations at 2:40 p.m. and adjourned  for the day at about 5 p.m. Deliberations resume Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.

In this segment, WFAE's Gwendolyn Glenn and Michael Tomsic break down the final arguments made by both sides.
