Rittenhouse lawyers say they will ask for a mistrial

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — Defense attorneys at Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial say they will ask the judge to declare a mistrial after prosecutors posed what appeared to be improper questions of Rittenhouse on the stand.

Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder did not immediately rule, saying he would give the prosecution a chance to respond.

At issue were questions prosecutors about Rittenhouse protecting property and about his silence after his arrest.
