(WXOW) - The extradition for the 17-year-old suspect in the shooting of two people in Kenosha and wounding another likely won't happen until late next month.

At a court hearing Friday morning, the court-appointed attorney representing Kyle Rittenhouse asked for more time in the case.

The public defender said the delay would allow Rittenhouse to meet with a private attorney and for that attorney to file an appearance with the court.

Rittenhouse did not appear during the hearing which was conducted online due to COVID-19.

Prosecutors in Waukegan said they're forwarding paperwork from Wisconsin to the defense to extradite Rittenhouse back to the state to face charges.

Rittenhouse's attorney did not waive extradition back to Wisconsin during the hearing.

The judge in the case set the next hearing for Rittenhouse Friday, September 25 at 9 a.m.

In the meantime, Rittenhouse remains in Lake County, Illinois

Rittenhouse is charged in Kenosha County with one count of first-degree intentional homicide; one count of first-degree reckless homicide; one count of attempted first-degree intentional homicide; two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment.

All those charges are felonies.

A criminal complaint in the case alleges Rittenhouse killed Joseph D. Rosenbaum, 36, from Kenosha, and Anthony M. Huber, 26, from Silver Lake, on Aug. 25 during unrest in city.

Rittenhouse is also charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly being a minor in possession of a dangerous weapon.
