Shooting Victim Fighting Return to Kenosha

The prosecution of an attempted homicide in Kenosha is being delayed because the victim in the case is suspected of being the suspect in a separate homicide — and is fighting extradition back to face his own charges. 23-year-old Fabian Johnson is facing charges of attempted first-degree homicide for the July 18 shooting of 29-year-old Raphael Rush.   He was expected to go to trial in November, but the trial was delayed because the victim was unavailable. Rush, it turns out, was arrested in the October murder of Willie Owens. Prosecutors (in court this week) said that Rush is still in the Cook County Jail, fighting extradition to Kenosha County. Johnson’s new trial (meanwhile) is scheduled for Jan. 24.
