SHEBOYGAN - One of the boys convicted of killing his great-grandmother has been convicted to life in prison with the eligibility for parole.
Antonio Barbeau could be paroled on Nov. 24, 2048, his 50th birthday.
Barbeau testified that the weekend before the murder, he and his friend Nathan Paape had discussed ways to get money.
When he said his great-grandmother had it, they asked his mom for a ride to "a friend's house."
She dropped him off where they asked, and they walked two miles to the home.
Barbeau continued by saying that he had a hatchet and Paape had a hammer, and they hit his great-grandmother multiple times.
Several family members read statements, asking for leniency and blaming a head injury Barbeau suffered at age 10 for his actions.
Paape is set to be sentenced Tuesday.
