Watch now: Kyle Rittenhouse’s attorney argues self-defense at preliminary hearing | Crime

The detective testified that Rosenbaum was chasing Rittenhouse before he was shot. After that shooting, he said, Rittenhouse was running away and fell to the ground, shooting Huber after Huber hit Rittenhouse with a skateboard. Another man, who was seen on video trying to kick Rittenhouse, was never identified, Antaramian testified.

“The state is trying to put forward a one-sided view of what happened, protecting someone who does not deserve protection, he’s a masked robber,” Richards said of Rosenbaum.

Kat West murder trial: Couple had an ‘enjoyable date’ the night she died, attorney argues

The attorney for a Shelby County man going on trial this week in the 2018 blunt force trauma death of his wife says text messages expected to be introduced as evidence “were simply words exchanged and did not include any threats of violence,” between suspect Jeff West and his wife, Kat West.

Attorney John Robbins stated in court documents filed Sunday that not only is there no evidence of an argument on the night Kat West died, evidence shows the two had “an enjoyable date” that same night.

He said the court’s ruling in May against the stay-at-home order should have forced Evers to go through a rulemaking process instead of declaring emergencies. That path
