A Wisconsin jury has found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty of all charges in his double homicide trial. 

Rittenhouse remained still and emotionless as the verdict was read, but then broke down and sobbed soon after. 

Families of the victims were seen crying in court. 

The 18-year-old always maintained he killed two men and injured a third in self defense last year during social justice protests in Kenosha. 

Judge Bruce Schroeder said the Jury was a pleasure to work with. He added they were attentive. Schroeder said jurors don't have to talk about the case. However, they have the option to do that if they so choose.

The man who led the prosecution against Kyle Rittenhouse, Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger would only say "The jury has represented our community in this trial and has spoken." 

Binger was accused of withholding key video evidence taken when Rittenhouse shot and killed two people during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year. The judge in the case yelled at Binger after he apparently introduced evidence during the trial that wasn't allowed.
