Jury to begin deliberations at Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial

  Jury to begin deliberations at Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — Jurors will begin deliberations Tuesday at Kyle Rittenhouse's murder trial after two weeks of testimony in which prosecutors and defense attorneys painted starkly different pictures of his actions the night he shot three men on the streets of Kenosha. Prosecutors claimed in closing arguments Monday that Rittenhouse was a “wannabe soldier” who provoked bloodshed by bringing a semi-automatic rifle to a protest and menacing others, then walking off like a “hero in a Western” after killing two men and wounding a third. © Provided by Associated Press A lone protester stands outside the Kenosha County Courthouse, late Monday, Nov.

Rittenhouse shot three men, killing two and injuring one, during protests in Kenosha following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, an African American. Rittenhouse's legal team argued that their client's actions were in self-defense.

On Friday, Rittenhouse was cleared of charges that included one count of first-degree reckless homicide, one count of first-degree intentional homicide, one count of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, and two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
