CBS News reports:
Kyle Rittenhouse, the northern Illinois teenager accused of gunning down two protesters after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, will fight extradition back to Wisconsin, his lawyers said Friday.
Lake County Judge Paul Novak gave prosecutors and attorneys for Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, two more weeks to prepare legal filings and ordered them to appear before him again on Oct. 9.
Rittenhouse, from Antioch, Illinois, is accused of fatally shooting two protesters and wounding a third on Aug. 25 during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Defense lawyers have previously said their client was acting in self-defense.
