On Friday, the state and defense are expected to offer jury instructions and motion arguments in the Kyle Rittenhouse case. Closing arguments are expected on Monday. Each side will have 2½ hours for their closing arguments.
Rittenhouse, now 18, shot two people and wounded a third during riots on the night of Aug. 25, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. His attorneys said he acted in self-defense, while prosecutors who at times have drawn the ire of the judge, painted Rittenhouse as a murder.
On Wednesday, Rittenhouse took the stand, a high-stakes bet by the defense. Rittenhouse maintained his innocent, telling the jury he did not want to kill anyone, but felt his life was threatened.
