Despite having a Racine address, a man extradited from Michigan was brought up on an attempted homicide charge on a 15-year-old case where a man was shot in the leg.

William Myhre, 32, of Racine was charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide while armed. If convicted of the charge, he faces up to 65 years in prison. Racine County Court Commissioner Alice Rudebusch set $100,000 cash bond for Myhre.

According to the criminal complaint, Juan Espinoza told detectives with the Racine Police Department that he was walking by a group of people playing a dice game in a building in the 1500 block of State St. on Dec. 23, 2001 when he heard shots fired. Turning around, Espinoza saw Myhre shooting a handgun.

Myhre continued shooting in Espinoza’s direction while he ran away. He dove to the ground and realized that he had been shot. A group of people then ran out of the building yelling about being associated with a gang.

After being brought in on a warrant, Myhre was in court on Monday after being brought in on an extradition from Michigan, according to a story by the Journal Times.
