MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The conviction of a 77-year-old Sheboygan woman for a 50-year-old crime, and a massive wildfire in Douglas County last May, were among Wisconsin's top non-political stories for 2013.

A number of crime stories made headlines. A 25-year-old West Allis woman was sentenced to 18 years after her three children died in a house fire while they were locked in a bedroom. Jaren Kuester of Waukesha was confined to a mental institution after killing three people at a home near Wiota.

In July, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee released 6,000 pages of documents that included personnel files for 42 priests with substantiated allegations of child sexual abuse. In September, a pier under the Leo Frigo Bridge in Green Bay sank by more than 2 feet, causing a long dip in the pavement.
