A Little Falls man charged with fatally shooting two teenagers who broke into his home on Thanksgiving Day in 2012 chose not to testify in his own behalf Monday, and his defense rested after calling three character witnesses and a private detective who sought to bolster the homeowner's claim of self-defense.

Hamline University Law Professor Joseph Daly joined KSTP to talk more about why aren't we hearing from Smith and how long the jury could take.
