Extradition of Kyle Rittenhouse and the Illinois teenager was ordered by a judge on Friday for killing two people in Kenosha at a protest and are already jailed in Wisconsin, according to IMJ4 reports.
After the police shooting of Jacob Blake, Rittenhouse, 17, traveled from his home in Illinois with his three sons in the backseat on August 25 because of protests. Rittenhouse has been charged with attempted homicide, intentional homicide, recklessly endangering safety, reckless homicide, and possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18 for fatally shooting Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz, 26, at the protest.
According to Rittenhouse’s attorneys, the teenager acted in self-defense and tried to block the extradition. However, Lake County Judge Paul Novak granted the request to send him to Wisconsin as all the documentation was in proper order.
