He reportedly admitted that “his intention was to rape and kill the victim from the very beginning.”

Lily Peters died of strangulation and blunt force trauma, an autopsy has revealed.
Prosecutors claim the 14-year-old suspect also sexually assaulted a 10-year-old girl before she died.
On Wednesday the teen, identified only by the initial “CP-B,” was charged with first-degree intentional manslaughter, first-degree sexual assault and first-degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 13. The result was great physical damage.
Chippewa County District Attorney Wade Newell said the boy admitted to police that he punched the victim in the stomach, slammed her to the ground, “essentially strangulated her, hit her with a stick, before strangling her.” Killed her. Sexually assaulted her,” ABC7 reported.
Newell said the teen also admitted that “his intention was to rape and kill the victim” when they went to the wooded area where her body would eventually be found.
Arguing for bail, the defense counsel for the accused insisted that the boy did not take the flight risk.
Lawyer Carl Schmidt said, “He can’t drive. He’s not in a position to raise much money on his own, frankly. He lives with his mother. He’s a lifelong resident of Chippewa County.”
The judge determined a $1 million cash bond. The teenager will be produced in the court on May 5 through video link.
It has not yet been determined whether the juvenile will be prosecuted as an adult; In Wisconsin, first-degree intentional murder cases go to adult court by default, but it may not necessarily stay there because of the suspect’s age.

They did not disclose the suspect’s exact age, nor how they knew the victim, but referred to the suspect as “he”.
The cause of death also remains unknown.
Neighbor Jeremy Machnik, whose children often played with Lily, told KSTP that he often saw the child walking through the area on his bike.
“I grew up here all my life, never heard of anything like that,” he said. “It’s a scary situation when you know… we’re indoors… and it’s Sunday afternoon, we’re cleaning up and making dinner and it’s going to be a block away from our house. And it’s scary.”
