Judge in Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial rules that prosecutors cannot refer to the people he killed during protest against police brutality as “victims,”



A judge has ruled that the three men Kyle Rittenhouse shot during a protest against police brutality in Wisconsin can be labeled rioters, looters or arsonists and not victims if the teenager's defense team has evidence to support the characterizations.



In a proceeding about the ground rules for the upcoming trial, prosecutors and defense lawyers debated whether certain language, witnesses or evidence would be allowed.



The decision was among the ground rules Kenosha County Judge Bruce E. Schroeder set Monday for the trial, which is expected to begin Nov. 1.
