SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- A 13-year-old Sheboygan boy accused of killing and robbing his great grandmother has been ordered to undergo a competency exam.
A judge granted the defense's request for the exam on Monday.
The boy and his 13-year-old friend allegedly used a hatchet and a hammer to kill Barbara Olson at her Sheboygan Falls home last month before stealing jewelry and a car. Her daughter discovered her body in the garage two days later.
WLUK-TV reports the great grandson is scheduled to return to court Nov. 2 for his competency hearing. That's the same day the friend returns to court for a hearing.
A judge has previously ruled there's enough probable cause for both teens to stand trial in the case. The boys are charged as adults.
