The man who police say killed his neighbor back in 2016 is expected to be in Eau Claire County court later today.
Shane Helmbrecht was brought back to Eau Claire on Friday. He’s been on the run since September when police say he walked away from a halfway house. He was arrested last month in Mexico. Doctors originally declared Helmbrecht unfit for trial, but that could change after his escape.
Prosecutors in Eau Claire, however, have not made any formal announcements.
