The defense continued to make its case Friday morning in the Byron Smith murder trial.

Prosecutors wrapped up on Thursday. Lawyers for Smith are trying to prove he acted in self defense when he killed two teens that broke into his Little Falls home.

Smith shot Nick Brady three times with a rifle and shot Haile Kifer six times with two guns.

Christa Groshek, a Minneapolis-based attorney, joined Chris Egert in the studio on Friday morning to talk about what to expect from the defense.
