Hearing delayed for grandson in Siepmann slaying

Aug. 29, 2011

Waukesha - A decision on whether a teenager accused of killing his grandfather in May is competent for the criminal case against him to proceed was delayed on Monday because the youth is changing attorneys.

Richard B. Wilson, 17, of Fox Point, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the May 8 slaying of Ronald Siepmann.

In June, Wilson was declared incompetent to face charges that he killed his grandfather, and Waukesha County Circuit Judge William J. Domina ordered him committed for mental health treatment.

A new competency report was filed last week and was scheduled to be discussed during a review hearing Monday afternoon. But Domina rescheduled the hearing to Wednesday after Wilson's attorney, Jennifer R. Dorow, said that Wilson's family has now retained attorney Michael Steinle to handle the case.

Siepmann, 78, a real estate developer, was found dead in a shed on the property of his Beaver Lake home in the Town of Merton. A bloody ax was nearby.

A report from a court-appointed psychologist who examined Wilson in the aftermath of the killing stated that Wilson has an active psychotic condition, but that he was likely to regain competency with treatment.

Wilson's mother told authorities investigating the homicide that Wilson was diagnosed in November with schizophrenia and had stopped taking his medication, according to the criminal complaint filed in the case.
