Kyle Rittenhouse to stand trial on all 6 counts related to fatal Kenosha protest shooting

A judge on Thursday ruled that Kyle Rittenhouse will stand trial on all six counts, including charges related to the shooting deaths of two men and wounding of a third, during a protest in Kenosha, Wis., in August.

The decision came after Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old from Antioch, Ill., appeared in a Kenosha County preliminary court hearing held via Zoom. 

The teen was freed from jail last month after posting a $2 million bond, with most of the money raised through a legal defense fund set up by conservatives portraying him as a patriot protecting other people’s property.

Rittenhouse faces charges that he killed Anthony M. Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz during protests that followed the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha in August.

Kenosha County Commissioner Loren Keating, after hearing the testimony of a detective on the case, said the state had demonstrated probable cause that the felonies were committed by the young man.

Rittenhouse will be arraigned January 5 in Kenosha County Circuit Court.
