Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager due to Kenosha murders, was brought to justice


KENOSHA, Wis. “Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager accused of killing two protesters during a demonstration in Kenos, Augos, is on trial.

Loren Keating, the commissioner for Kenosha County District Court, made Thursday’s decision after a controversial trial in which 17-year-old lawyer Kyle Rittenhouse tried to show that the teenager acted in self-defense.

Commissioner Keating also denied two motions from Rittenhouse’s lawyer earlier this week. The defense wanted to make two charges against Illinois teens, including possession of a dangerous weapon and a first-degree, reckless threat of using a dangerous weapon.

Rittenhouse is charged with manslaughter and attempted manslaughter in the deaths of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and the wounding of Gaige Grosskreutz on 25 August.

Rittenhouse’s next court appearance is scheduled for January 5, 2021.
