A 17-year-old accused of killing two protesters days after Jacob Blake was shot by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, faces a hearing to return him to Wisconsin to face trial on homicide charges that could put him in prison for life.

Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested at his home in Antioch, Illinois, a day after prosecutors say he shot and killed two and wounded a third on the streets of Kenosha on Aug. 25.

His attorneys have said Rittenhouse acted in self-defense.

A Friday court hearing in Illinois was to determine whether to send Rittenhouse to Wisconsin to face charges.
