Wisconsin prosecutors seek arrest warrant for Kyle Rittenhouse
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin prosecutors have asked a judge for a new arrest warrant for an Illinois teen charged with fatally shooting two people during an anti-police protest in Kenosha in August.
Kyle Rittenhouse faces two counts of intentional homicide. He was arrested the day after the shootings but went free after he posted $2 million bail. Conservative groups covered that cost.
Prosecutors filed a motion Wednesday alleging that Rittenhouse violated his bond after he failed to inform them that he has moved, preventing the court from monitoring his whereabouts.
They filed a motion asking Judge Bruce Schroeder to issue an arrest warrant and increase bail by $200,000.
Rittenhouse’s attorney said he’s looking into a response.
