Day 2 of Kate Steinle murder trial

Today was the second day of the trial of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the illegal alien accused of murdering Kate Steinle on July 1, 2015.

A witness testified that she saw Zarate spinning in his seat and laughing to himself just before the shot went off that killed Steinle.

The main question for jurors is whether or not the shooting was intentional, or just an accident. They're expected to hear from a number of witnesses that will help them decide whether to convict Zarate of second degree murder, manslaughter, or acquit him.

Why is acquittal even on the table?

Reporter Vivian Ho from the San Francisco Chronicle joined us this afternoon with the latest on the trial:
