File - Murder defendant O.J. Simpson grimaces as he tries on one of the leather gloves prosecutors say he wore the night his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were murdered, during the Simpson double-murder trial Thursday, June 15, 1995, in Los Angeles. O.J. Simpson's prosecutors rested Thursday, July 6, 1995 after five months and 58 witnesses in a legal drama that transfixed the nation with a tale of a football hero turned murderer.

On October 3, 1995, the public held its breath as O.J. Simpson, one of the most popular athletes and actors of the 1970's and 1980's, was found not guilty of murdering his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

With the 21st anniversary of the verdict, and with several high profile documentaries recently released about the trial, we decided to take a look back in the archives at one of the most widely publicized trials in recent memory.

The Associated Press were there to cover the story from multiple angles. Here is a collection of some of the images from the trial.
