Some detail on Jury instructions ex Live blog - Detroit Free Press:
by Gina Damron

http://www.freep.com/article/20140805/N ... ha-mcbride

Hathaway said she is going to instruct the jury with what she can today.

"It is your job to decide what the facts of the case are," Hathaway sai

She said the prosecutor must prove each element beyond reasonable doubt.

Hathaway said that jurors can only consider evidence that was properly admitted in the case.

Hathaway said some of the things that are not evidence include the lawyers statements and arguments and lawyers questions to the witnesses.

"You are the only judges of the facts," Hathaway told the jury.

Hathaway said Wafer is charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter. She said the jury must consider each crime separately.

Hathaway is listing the names of the expert witnesses who testified.

Wafer is charged with second-degree murder. Hathaway said the jury can consider the lesser charge of involuntary manner. Elements of involuntary manslaughter are that he caused the death of McBride, acted in a grossly negligent manner and caused death without lawful excuse or justification.

Wafer is also charged with manslaughter

Hathaway said closing arguments are to go no longer than about one hour for each side.

motion from def atty to strike from record that renisha mcbride looking for help that nov. 2 morning. doesn't want pros to mention inclosing

pros pat muscat arguing now the defense brought it up

def atty says wafer didn't inject it in his defense that mcbride was looking for help..judge says no dispute mcbride injured, bleeding ..

that morning ..so judge will allow it..muscat will do first part of closing for pros. and pros athina siringas will do rest and rebuttal

def atty and pros still going over what instructions jury shld get..def atty wants the word "aim" in there ..pros objects..jurors not in ct

muscat says "aiming" not part of crime..it's pointing, he says

muscat says jury form not confusing and it's too late for the def to start adding other wording for elements... of the crime

pros says the def atty doesn't need to add extra wording that will "confuse" the jury

judge says she gen. doesn't add addtl info. to jury form cause it can cause confusion

def atty: "I'm asking for three words.."

pros: "is she (def atty) really concerned about making the jury form as clear as poss.??"

muscat: .."nope..nope..you cannot restrict us in that way (from demon. with the shotgun) during closing arguments

def atty: "i know juror # 9 was horrified (about pros handling of shotgun during cross tuesday).."

pros athina siringas: "they want to sanitize this case""..about judge saying for shotgun not to be shown during closing arguments..

judge gonna allow pros muscat to use shotgun for closing arguments. says she's going to "hold" him to his promise to safely handle shotgun

def atty wants to tell jurors during closing that mcbride broke wafer's home cause she was on porch. pros objects

pros: says def.going to argue mcbride "broke" the house cause she was on wafer's porch..pros objects saying def gonna argue it for self.def.

judge says she has not given jury instructions in relation to breaking and entering. the whole issue is whether someone was attack. in home

judge says there was no attack. pros. says def is going to infer there and that law contrary to tha

judge says you still need an attack for no duty to retreat (michigan self defense law)

judge tells def atty she will stop her if she infers. that mcbride was breaking into wafer's porch cause she was on his porch

def atty says as an atty she follows the law and wants to make sure it's okay to make her arguments

def atty says "i'm never going to say she was inside mr wafer's house. she wasn't"..jury comes in now

pros says wafer has not established great defense for self defense and that he handled his gun like a toy and as a result a 19 yr old isdead

pros: wafer only person who says he heard knocking/banging..no evid of it..his testimony not worthy of belief

pros says police have said wafer home "buttoned" up so there was no threat of mcbride coming into his home

pros says wafer knew of danger when he raised his gun and pulled the trigger

pros says wafer has no credibility and that he manipulated the facts in the case when he testified

in instruct. jurors on exculpatory statements, pros tells them they can find him guiltyin the case if they believe he was lying

pros:He shot through a locked door. He shot an unarmed teen.

def atty: the law of self def is the ultimate protect for everyone of us. For me, for you..This is what we need to concen. on.

def atty quoting wafer: i thought there were coming in..(the shooting) was not my first..(he grabbed bat).i tried to play dead

def atty: What evid did they give you the shot gun blast caused that (damage to screen door)…zero!!!

defense: "She was coming from the side at mr. wafer... Mr.wafer was terrorized in his own home."

defense: "this case is about renisha despite what the prosecutors think.."

Image

defense: "I'm not blaming renisha but alcohol is what caused all of this. Shows timeline of renisha’s last hours and wafer's

defense: wafer is a rule follower..that night he didn’t do anything wrong. He’s protected by the law of self defense clear and simple

defense says dbrn heights police "turned a blind eye" to some key evidence in the case during inves.

defense: (Wafer) is not guilty cause (the prosecution) did not disprove self defense.

defense: (the prosecution.)didn’t bring anything to you. There is no way they can disprove this was self-defense. None.

defense: He's not a gun nut. He’s not an angry person. He’s not paranoid. He did it in the heat of that moment. He was in terror.

defense: I hate guns but i love the law(mi self defense law changed in 2006)

Carpenter again brought up the incident in which an assistant prosecutor pointed the shotgun in the direction of the jury on Tuesday. She said another assistant prosecutor racked the gun several times yesterday. Carpenter said the gun is scary.
