Chippewa Co. Court Case in Limbo

Chippewa Co. Court Case in Limbo

Lawyers for the now-teenager who’s accused of killing Lily Peters continue to fight to keep his case out of adult court.

Both the defense and prosecution have filed their briefs with the appellate court. The suspect in the case was 14-years-old when Chippewa Falls Police say he beat, raped, and strangled Peters as she was walking home back in 2022. The case has lingered for over two years because of a judicial backlog, and because of the back-and-forth over whether the case should be tried in adult court. A judge back in January ordered the case moved to adult court, and ordered that the trial begin soon.
