Illinois defends plan to send Rittenhouse to Wisconsin for charges in fatal Kenosha shootings
charges in the deaths of two protesters in August.
The Lake County state's attorney met a deadline to respond to Kyle Rittenhouse's lawyers, who are fighting his extradition to Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Rittenhouse surrendered to police in his hometown, Antioch, Illinois.
A court hearing is scheduled for next Friday.
Rittenhouse's legal team is raising technicalities about typographical errors in documents. Prosecutors call it a "red herring."
Rittenhouse is accused of killing two protesters during unrest over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
