Following closing arguments yesterday, the jury in the murder trial of Kyle Rittenhouse returned to the courtroom this morning.
The judge is set to dismiss a handful of jurors who won’t be involved in deliberations. Once that’s sorted, deliberations will get underway. The jury will consider five felony charges against Rittenhouse, the now 18-year-old Illinois gunman who crossed state lines with an AR-15 type rifle and killed two men and injured another during racial injustice protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin last year. One weapons-related charge was dismissed yesterday.
