(Scroll down for video) Two children hacked a grandmother to death in order to get money to buy pizza, according to reports.
Two 13-year-old children in Wisconsin, have been charged with first-degree murder for the brutal killing of one of the boy's great-grandmother, who was allegedly beaten with a hammer and an ax before stealing her spare change to go out and buy pizza.
The two boys, Antonio D. Barbeau and Nathan J. Paape, were charged on Friday as adults, for the killing of 78-year-old Barbara J. Olson, prosecutors said.
In a crime that was both terrible and cruel, the boys are accused of going to Olson’s home in Sheboygan to get some money.
Barbeau reportedly told his friend he must kill the old woman, and armed himself with a hammer and an ax.
The kids got a ride to the house with the mother of Paape, while hiding their weapons in their clothing, police said.
They entered the house through an open door, and when Olson said she would call the mother of Barbeau, the teen allegedly hit her in the head with the blunt end of the ax.
She fell to the ground, but police said that Barbeau continued striking her with the back of the hatchet, while the woman was trying to cover her head, moaning and telling him to stop.
Paape then hit her twice with the hammer, police said.
Her grandson turned the hatchet around and hit her in the head with the sharp end, police said.
The teens then ransacked the house, taking a wallet, quarters and loose jewelry, prosecutors said.
They also allegedly tried to rid the body of the victim, pulling her into the garage, but then they abandoned the plan.
Instead, prosecutors said that the teens stole the car and finally left it at a bowling alley in Sheboygan. From there, they went to the pizzeria.
Olson’s body was found on Wednesday.
