It will likely be next year before a judge in Chippewa County decides if the teenager accused of killing 10-year-old Lily Peters will be tried as an adult.
A hearing in the case ended yesterday, but the judge said a ruling isn’t likely to come until January. Lawyers for the now-15-year-old accused of killing Peters want the case moved to juvenile court. The wait for a ruling is just the latest delay. Peters was killed in April of last year.
