Great-grandson, 2nd boy charged with killing woman

Two 13-year-old boys are charged with killing a woman with a hatchet and hammer in Sheboygan Falls.

Prosecutors say one of the boys is the victim's great grandson.

The two appeared in Sheboygan County Circuit Court Friday where $1 million bond was set for each on charges of party to first-degree intentional homicide.

Prosecutor Joe DeCecco told a judge the boys were going to the home of 78-year-old Barbara Olson to steal from her and kill her.

A criminal complaint says the boys stole jewelry and the victim's car and went out for pizza after the crime.

DeCecco says Olson was killed on Monday in her house.

Police say the boys then dragged the victim to her garage where her daughter discovered her mother's body on Wednesday.
