Teen guilty in elderly woman’s murder

A 14-year-old Sheboygan teen has been found guilty of helping to kill his friend’s great grandmother with a hatchet and a hammer. The jury spent barely an hour deliberating the fate of Nathan Paape.

Testimony wrapped up Wednesday and the jury was handed his fate Thursday afternoon. Paape was found guilty of being party to first degree intentional homicide.

Antonio Barbeau, the victim’s 14 year-old great grandson, allegedly plotted the robbery and murder of 78-year-old Barbara Olson. She was found bludgeoned to death in her Sheboygan Falls home last September.

Barbeau already pled no contest to first-degree intentional homicide and is awaiting sentencing.
