18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse broke down while testifying the moment he killed two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse is charged with killing two men, 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum and 26-year-old Anthony Huber, on August 25, 2020, during a protest over the killing of Jacob Blake. Rittenhouse has pleaded not guilty and took to the stand, saying he acted in self-defense with his AR-15-style rifle. Rittenhouse claims Huber had attacked him with a skateboard while Rosenbaum spewed profanities and threats at him.
As the defense lawyer asked him to describe the moments leading up to the shooting, Rittenhouse began to sob uncontrollably, which prompted Judge Bruce Schroeder to call a recess. He faces life in prison if convicted.
