Wisconsin Democrat Gov. Tony Evers is ordering approximately 500 Wisconsin Army National Guard troops to report for active duty as the controversial self-defense trial for Kyle Rittenhouse is expected to be completed Monday.

“We continue to be in close contact with our partners at the local level to ensure the state provides support and resources to help keep the Kenosha community and greater area safe,” the governor said.

Rittenhouse currently faces six charges: first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree attempted intentional homicide, two counts of reckless endangerment, and possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18. The seventh charge for curfew violation was dismissed by the judge, NPR reported.
