Teen pleads insanity in Wis. school fire

Posted:

OCONTO, Wis. (AP) -- A teenage boy accused of setting fire to an Oconto Falls church school says he's not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect.

Sixteen-year-old Vincent Enneper is charged in adult court with arson, attempted arson, and burglary.

The criminal complaint says the boy was bored and got into St. Anthony School last month and started setting fires.

The fire caused about $2 million in damage and forced the school to move classes to a nearby church.

WBAY-TV reports Enneper waived his preliminary hearing, when the prosecution would present its evidence, and entered the plea Monday.

He will now be evaluated by a court-appointed examiner, who will submit a report to the court by May 11.
