Attorneys in the Chai Vang murder trial outline their cases Saturday.

Chai Vang is charged with six counts of first degree intentional homicide and two counts of attempted homicide stemming from a hunting land dispute in northwestern Wisconsin back in November.
Vang has claimed he fired shots in self defense.

Vang's his attorneys said he fired his gun because he believed one of the other hunters fired first. However, prosecutors say Vang fired first because he was angry the hunting group was disrespecting him.
