SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - The first of two Sheboygan teens convicted of robbing-and-killing one of their elderly relatives will get a chance to go free in just over 35 years.

14-year-old Antonio Barbeau was given a mandatory life prison sentence Monday– but because of his age, it was also mandatory that he be given a minimum eligibility date for a supervised release.

He’ll be eligible for that release in 2048, when he’s 50.

That’s the date agreed upon by both the prosecution and defense when Barbeau struck a plea deal a few weeks ago.His 14-year-old friend Nathan Paape will be sentenced tomorrow.

His case went to a jury, who did not buy the claim that Paape had almost nothing to do with the plot to kill Barbeau’s 78-year-old great-grandmother Barbara Olson last September.

Barbeau admitted on the witness stand that he and Pappe went to Olson’s house to get money – and they would use force if they had to.

They got away with about $150-dollars after killing Olson with a hammer and a hatchet.

Barbeau apologized in court and asked for forgiveness.
