On Aug. 25, 2020, Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz.
Several legal experts say putting Rittenhouse on the stand was effective for the defense and agree that prosecutors have struggled at times to make their case. Closing arguments are expected Monday.
Attorneys for Jacob Blake have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against Kenosha Police Officer Rusten Sheskey over the August shooting, which left Blake paralyzed and sparked days of unrest.
The request to postpone came from prosecutors and defense lawyers looking for more time to build their cases. Rittenhouse is accused of killing two men and wounding another.
Prosecutors asked the judge last week to issue a new warrant and raise Rittenhouse's bail by $200,000, arguing that he violated conditions of his release by not alerting them to his change of address.
The suspect is accused of shooting three protesters in Kenosha, Wis., during unrest in the city following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Two of his alleged victims were killed.
Rittenhouse faces charges that he shot to death two men and wounded a third at protests following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in August.
Rittenhouse's lawyers argued that because he had allegedly acted in self-defense the bond should be set at $750,000. But Court Commissioner Loren Keating rejected that argument.
