TheHill - A Wisconsin judge today dismissed a misdemeanor charge against Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager currently facing murder charges for fatally shooting two protesters during unrest over police brutality last year in Kenosha, Wis. Judge Bruce Schroeder said that it was unclear whether the rifle Rittenhouse used qualified under the Wisconsin statute and the prosecutors in the case chose not to press their case on the single misdemeanor count. At this time of writing, Rittenhouse is still facing multiple felony counts, including two counts of homicide.

Kyle Rittenhouse Sobs on Witness Stand
Kyle Rittenhouse, the 18-year-old accused of killing two people during a Black Lives Matter protest in Wisconsin last summer, broke down on the witness stand Wednesday at his widely watched homicide trial. Rittenhouse appeared to loudly sob and gasp for air while testifying in his own defense. Judge Bruce Schroede then called for a break in the trial. Fifteen minutes later, a now-composed Rittenhouse described the moment he opened fire on a protester who he says hit him with a skateboard.
