Wis. teen charged in killing found competent
WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) – A judge says a Wisconsin teenager accused
of killing his grandfather with an ax is competent to stand trial.
In June, 17-year-old Richard B. Wilson of Fox Point was declared
incompetent and ordered committed to the Mendota Mental Health
Institute in Madison for treatment.
A recent evaluation found Wilson now has the mental capacity to
understand the proceedings against him.
Wilson’s attorney did not challenge that conclusion.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Waukesha County Judge William Domina restarted the criminal
proceedings against Wilson. The next court hearing is set for Sept.
Wilson is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the
killing of 78-year-old Ronald Siepmann last May. Siepmann, a real
estate developer, was found dead in a shed on his Beaver Lake
property in the Town of Merton.
