Wisconsin Teen Typed Plan to Kill Grandparents

APPLETON, WI (AP) — A 17-year-old typed out pages on how he planned to fatally shoot his grandparents and law enforcement found those notes with a book on an executioner in the teen’s backpack after he called 911 and confessed to the killings, prosecutors in Wisconsin said Tuesday. Alexander Kraus was charged Tuesday in Outagamie County Circuit Court in Appleton, Wisconsin, with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the deaths of 74-year-old Dennis Kraus and 73-year-old Letha Kraus. Each charge carries a life sentence. Outagamie County Court Commissioner Brian Figy ordered Kraus held on a $2 million cash bond. Greg Petit, Kraus’ attorney, declined to comment Tuesday, telling The Associated Press after the hearing he “doesn’t know enough” yet about the case.
