SHEBOYGAN, WI (WSAU) A Sheboygan teenager has been found competent to stand trial in the September death of his great-grandmother. Next is a hearing in January to determine if the case will be moved to juvenile court.
The judge made his ruling yesterday, basing it on a court-ordered mental health evaluation. The 13 year old boy and a friend of the same age are charged with first-degree intentional homicide.
They are accused of beating 78 year old Barbara Olson to death in her home in Sheboygan Falls last September.
They allegedly used a hammer and a hatchet. Investigators say they then stole money to buy marijuana and pizza.
