TOKYO (Reuters) – Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with killing two people and injuring another during demonstrations on the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, will challenge his requested extradition from Illinois, his lawyer told a court hearing on Friday.

“We intend to challenge extradition by writ of habeas corpus,” John Pierce told a judge at the Lake County Circuit Court in Illinois.
