Competency hearing on killer of Real Estate mogul postponed

Waukesha – A court hearing this afternoon to determine if a Fox Point teen will stand trial for murdering his grandfather at this Town of Merton home in May was delayed until Wednesday as the family of the teen wanted to change lawyers.

Attorney Jennifer Dorow informed Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge William Domina that the family for Richard B. Wilson, 17, who is charged with first-degree intentional homicide for killing Ronald Siepmann, 78, May 8 wanted a new attorney. Michael Steinle will represent Wilson at Wednesday’s hearing.

Wilson is accused of killing Siepmann, a real estate developer and founder of Siepmann Realty in the City of Pewaukee, with an ax. A psychologist evaluated Wilson and a report on Wilson’s competency has been filed but is sealed.

In June, a report by a different psychologist concluded Wilson has an "active psychotic condition" but stated Wilson is "likely" to become competent to stand trial once he undergoes treatment.
