Antonio Barbeau and Nathan Paape Other News
Antonio Barbeau, one of two teenagers accused of killing an elderly Sheboygan Falls woman, was sentenced to life in prison with eligibility for parole in 36 years Monday, August 12th. Barbeau pleaded no contest to first-degree intentional homicide in a Sheboygan County courtroom on June 24th. It was part of a plea deal.
Barbeau and Nathan Paape are charged with first-degree intentional homicide for allegedly bludgeoning to death 78-year-old Barbara Olson (Barbeau’s great-grandmother) at her Sheboygan Falls home in September 2012 with a hammer and hatchet.
With the plea deal, Barbeau changed his plea from not guilty by mental disease or defect to no contest. Barbeau will be eligible for parole in 36 years. He also testified in Paape’s trial.
A psychiatrist has testified Barbeau has cognitive issues stemming from him being struck by a car when he was 10 — possibly affecting his behavior.
He could not get through his statement in court on Monday — so his lawyer finished it for him.
“I know I don’t show my emotions. I myself am not sure why, but that doesn’t mean I don’t…I took away someone’s mother, grandma, sister, friend. I had no right to do so. Because of this one action I decided to take, I’ve ruined so many lives,” Barbeau said.
Barbeau will be eligible for parole in 2048, when the now 14-year-old is 50.
A Sheboygan County judge sentenced 14-year-old Nathan Paape to life in prison on Tuesday, August 13th. Paape will not be eligible for parole until December 2, 2043 — when Paape turns 45 years old.
Paape was found guilty of first-degree intentional homicide, party to a crime for his role in the death of 78-year-old Barbara Olson in September 2012. Paape worked in association with Antonio Barbeau who pleaded no contest to the charges against him in this case. Olson was Barbeau’s great-grandmother.
The two boys ransacked Olson’s house and stole money. Later, they used some of that money to buy marijuana and pizza.
In court on Tuesday, Paape gave a short apology before he was sentenced.
“I just want to say I’m truly sorry for everything that happened. I truly regret every single thing that happened that day,” said Paape.
“I know this is bad, really bad. And no one can bring Barbara Olson back and our family. We haven’t had the opportunity to express our sympathy for their family,” said Lorrie Koene, Paape’s great aunt who spoke exclusively with FOX6 News.
Koene said her nephew has the social development of a ten-year-old and would easily be led by a smarter boy such as Antonio Barbeau; eager to please a friend.
“He actually thought he was going to get to come home after he told the truth,” said Koene. “He didn’t want this to happen. He didn’t plan to go there to kill Barbara Olson. He didn’t plan this. I don’t know what to say any more. There’s just so much sorrow for everybody involved, so much sorrow.”
Paape’s family hopes to appeal the sentence — and is appealing the boy’s crime being tried in adult court.
“Maybe the laws will change when it comes to sentencing kids. I hope it does. I hope it does,” said Koene.”
Barbeau was sentenced on Monday, August 12th. He was also sentenced to life in prison. Barbeau will not be eligible for parole until he turns 50 years old
