Kyle Rittenhouse trial continues for shootings in Kenosha, WI | USA TODAY
Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial is set to continue Thursday in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after emotional testimony during which Rittenhouse broke down.
After an emotional day of testimony and a call for a mistrial in Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial, his defense attorneys will call more witnesses to the stand Thursday to build their self-defense case.
Rittenhouse, 18, is charged with killing two people and wounding a third during violent protests in August 2020 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after a white police officer shot Jacob Blake, a Black man.
Rittenhouse testified Wednesday, at times breaking down in tears, as he recounted the events leading up to the shootings and how he said he feared for his life.
“I didn’t do anything wrong. I defended myself,” Rittenhouse said.
