Sheboygan boys to face trial in killing of 78-year-old woman

SHEBOYGAN (AP) -

Two 13-year-old Sheboygan boys will stand trial for allegedly killing and robbing the one boy's great grandmother.

A judge bound the teens over for trial Tuesday after investigators testified the pair killed the woman for money.

Earlier, the judge denied a defense motion to delay the hearing. Attorneys argued they didn't receive access to all the state's evidence but the judge ruled state law doesn't require it before the hearing.

Prosecutors allege the boys used a hatchet and hammer to kill 78-year-old Barbara Olson in her home on Sept. 17 before stealing jewelry and a car. Her daughter discovered her body in the garage two days later. The boys are charged as adults.

The Sheboygan Press reports defense attorneys will push to have the case sent to juvenile court.
