Wisconsin teen faces trial in Sheboygan slaying

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) - Jury selection for a 14-year-old boy accused of participating in the slaying of his friend's great-grandmother is set to begin Friday in Sheboygan.

Nathan Paape and Antonio Barbeau were both charged as adults in the September slaying of Barbeau's great-grandmother.

Barbeau pleaded no contest earlier this month to a charge of first-degree homicide.

Sheboygan Press Media reports (http://shebpr.es/150bnaE ) Paape is being tried on the same charge and faces up to life in prison if convicted.

Authorities have said a hammer and a hatchet were used to kill 78-year-old Barbara Olson at her home on Sept. 17. They say the boys then stole money to buy marijuana and pizza. Both were 13 at the time.
