Karen Read trial schedule: How and when to watch as deliberation nears

Closing arguments are expected Tuesday morning

With all of the days off and half days, it can be difficult to keep up with the schedule of the high-profile Karen Read murder trial.

Read is accused of striking John O'Keefe, her Boston police officer boyfriend, with her SUV and leaving him for dead in a snowbank outside the home of a fellow officer in Canton, Massachusetts, in the early hours of Jan. 29, 2022 after a night of drinking. She has pleaded not guilty, and her defense team argues she is being framed.
