Boy pleads no contest to killing great-grandmother


SHEBOYGAN (WKOW) – Prosecutors in Sheboygan County will suggest a 14-year-old boy be eligible for parole in 35 years for killing his great-grandmother.

In court on Tuesday, Antonio Barbeau changed his plea from not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect to no contest as part of a deal with the state.

Barbeau and 14-year-old Nathan Paape are charged as adults in the slaying of 78-year-old Barbara Olson at her Sheboygan Falls home last September.  Both of the boys were 13 at the time. 

Paape has pleaded not guilty in the case and is scheduled for trial later this month.

According to the Sheboygan Press Media, Barbeau will be sentenced August 12.  A first-degree intentional homicide conviction carries a life prison term, but a judge can set a parole eligibility date.
