Closing arguments begin Monday in the trial of the man accused of killing Kate Steinle. The case has drawn national attention because the man charged was in the country illegally after being deported five times. But for jurors, the main question is whether they believe the defense's argument that the gun fired accidentally.

Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd speaks with Alex Emslie (@SFNewsReporter), criminal justice reporter at KQED.

This segment aired on November 20, 2017.
