There were once again questions about whether the teenage suspect in the murder of Lily Peters can be helped behind bars.
A judge in Chippewa County yesterday again listened to the suspect’s lawyer try to make the case to move the trial to juvenile court. Yesterday’s expert testified that the suspect had mild autism, and might not fully understand what he did. The now 15-year-old is accused of beating, strangling, killing, then assaulting 10-year-old Lily Peters in April of last year.
The hearing continues today.
