CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - A reverse waiver brief is filed in the case of Lily Peters.

In the document, Chippewa County District Attorney Wade Newell argues that the teen charged in the death of Peters remain in adult court.

The conclusion of the document, signed by the District Attorney, states in part, “Given that the defendant has not proven the statutory factors necessary for this Court to transfer the matter to juvenile court, this Court must deny the petition for reverse waiver.”
