Teen accused of killing 78-year-old woman to be tried as adult
SHEBOYGAN COUNTY -- The fight to have a teen's murder case moved to juvenile court is over. A Sheboygan County judge has ruled that Nathan Paape will be tried as an adult.
In order for Paape to be moved to juvenile his attorney had to prove Paape can't receive proper treatment in an adult facility, moving the case to juvenile court doesn't depreciate the seriousness of the crime, and transferring the case to juvenile court will deter Paape from committing more crimes.
Antonio Barbeau and Paape went to Barbeau's great-grandmother Barbara Olson's house intending to kill her. They entered through an unlocked door.
Both Paape and Barbeau are being tried as adults.
