Kyle Rittenhouse in Court for More Decisions on Filed Motions

MADISON, Wis. (AP)  A former Antioch teen accused of shooting three people during last year’s Kenosha protests and riots is due back in court today. Kyle Rittenhouse is charged with murder and more in the deaths of two men and the wounding of a third in August of 2020. Judge Bruce Schroeder is expected to consider remaining motions during today’s hearing, including Rittenhouse’s requests to dismiss a charge that he possessed his gun illegally and to allow testimony from a police use-of-force expert. Prosecutors want to introduce video of Rittenhouse talking about wanting to shoot some men he thought were shoplifting…though the judge said during a previous hearing that he was leaning toward excluding that video. Trial is expected to start in November.
