Bail has been set at one-million dollars for the juvenile suspect accused of killing 10-year-old Lily Peters Sunday night. Chippewa County District Attorney Wade Newell says the victim was punched in the stomach, knocked to the ground, and strangled with a stick before she was sexually assaulted. The 14-year-old boy is charged in adult court with first-degree intentional homicide and sexual assault of a child. His name hasn’t been released. Authorities say he and the victim are related but they haven’t said how. The two left an aunt’s house together Sunday and the girl’s body was found Monday morning. Newell says the teenager told detectives it was his intention to rape and kill the victim from the start.
