Woman Pleads Insanity to Killing Her Young Son

A trial date of November ninth is set for a Sheboygan Falls mother who reportedly claimed that “voices” caused her to kill her two-year-old son. Twenty-seven-year-old Katlyn Kinateder (kin’ ah ted’ er) pleaded insanity Monday to first degree intentional homicide, and hiding a child’s corpse. Sheboygan County District Attorney Joe DeCecco (deh check’ oh) says Kinateder will have one or more psychiatric exams. The defense wants to either move the trial, or bring in an outside jury due to heavy media coverage of the case — and the court scheduled a hearing for October 24th to give Kinateder a chance to change her plea. Police say they had to subdue her before they found her toddler in a cardboard box wrapped in a blanket at her home earlier this month — and reports say she might have been off her mental health medication at the time.

Update on Fatal Sheboygan Falls Fire

A house fire that killed three children in January in Sheboygan Falls started in the basement. The state Fire Marshal’s office says the official cause is undetermined — but it likely started near a couch in a playroom, and faulty electric wiring may have triggered the flames. Eleven-year-old Natalie Martin died in the fire, along with ten-year-old Ben Martin and seven-year-old Carter Maki. Their nine-year-old sister Jenna escaped unharmed. Their parents were not home at the time, and authorities say no charges will be filed against them.

Two Children Die in House Fire in Sheboygan Falls

Police say two children have died in a house fire in Sheboygan Falls near 5th & Western Avenue.  A third child is in critical condition. One other child was unharmed.

Officials said an 11-year-old child alerted the other children of the fire.  A 9-year-old was able to escape the home and met firefighters outside.  A brave 11-year-old child re-entered the home in an attempt to locate the other two children – ages 10 and 7.  Firefighters located the 7, 10 and 11-year-old children in an upstairs room.  The 7-year-old died at St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan.  The 10 and 11-year-olds were taken by helicopter to Children’s Hospital in Wauwatosa.

Officials said the 11-year-old died Wednesday morning. Police also said late Wednesday morning that the 10-year-old is in critical condition.

The children are believed to be siblings.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
