    Defendant in custody. HEARING - The motion filed by Attorney Kuchler will not be addressed today. The Court schedules the motion hearing on that matter for 04-22-2019 at 1:00pm. MOTION TO MODIFY BAIL CONDITION - Attorney Kuchler argues for the defendant to be allowed to have contact with co-defendant, Tina McKeever-Hauschultz. The State opposes any changes to the current no contact provision between the defendant and Ms. McKeever-Hauschultz. The Court adjourns this matter to 1:30pm today, when the co-defendant and her attorney will be present for the Court to discuss this with as well. Attorney Kuchler lastly asks the Court for clarification regarding the defendant's contact provisions with S.H.; specifically in regard to the visitation system at Door County Jail. The State approves contact through the jail's visitation system only if an official from Door County Jail can verify that the conversations are recorded. If they are not recorded, the State would not find the contact appropriate. Minutes.

    This is absolutely heart-breaking!

    I hope the innocent children are healing and are being raised in a loving, healthy environment. I can’t inagine the horror they have e survived.

    i guess I’m old-fashioned but to me it seemed odd that the woman, her husband and her boyfriend were abusive to the children. And punished the kids for not memorizing bible verses ....??? She is married and has a boyfriend, abuses kids but places an importance on Christian virtues???

    I believe they are actually referring to 4 people, the uncle, the aunt, the bio mom and bio mom's boyfriend.... That's how I read it anyway, but I'm not sure, so consider this just a speculation.

    Additional text:
    MOTION TO DISMISS COUNT 2 AS MULTIPLICITOUS WITH COUNT 4 - Defendant in custody. Attorney Kuchler has nothing more to add to the motion. She will just respond after hearing the States comments. Attorney Labre comments and objects to the motion. These counts occurred on separate dates and involved separate actions and does not believe the counts are multiplicitous. Rebuttal by both parties. The Court agrees the nature of the acts are similar. However, factually, they are substantially different. The factual basis is not at issue. Court finds counts 2 and 4 are different in fact and somewhat different in law. They are not multiplicitous and the motion is denied. State to draft order. Settlement conference with District Attorney is set for 06-17-19 at 11:00 a.m. Minutes.

    Judge denies man's motion to drop charges in boy's death (with clip)

    April 22nd 2019

    "MANITOWOC (WLUK) -- A judge denied a motion Monday to dismiss one of the counts filed against a man accused in connection with the death of a 7-year-old boy....

    Timothy Hauschultz...faces felony murder and other counts, while her charges include intentionally contributing to the delinquency of a minor causing death.

    Their son, Damian Hauschultz, 15, is charged with first-degree reckless homicide for allegedly causing the death. He returns to court June 21.

    In court Monday, Timothy Hauschultz asked for a count of intentionally contributing to the delinquency of a child causing death be dismissed, arguing it is duplicative to another count, that of intentional contributing to the delinquency of a child. But Judge Jerilyn Dietz denied the request, court records show...

    No trial date has been set for Timothy Hauschultz, who previously pleaded not guilty to all eight charges. A settlement conference with prosecutors will be held June 17.

    McKeever-Hauschultz is scheduled to enter a plea to her charges April 29...."

    Competency exam ordered for woman charged in 7-year-old's death


    MANITOWOC (WLUK) -- A competency exam was ordered Wednesday for a woman charged in connection with the death of a 7-year-old boy.

    Tina McKeever-Hauschultz faces four counts, including intentionally contributing to the delinquency of a child causing death, for the April 2018 death of Ethan Hauschultz.
    [.....]
    The competency exam will determine if McKeever-Hauschultz comprehends the legal proceedings, and if she can assist in her own defense. It does not address her mental condition at the time of the allegations; that issue could be raised at a later stage of the case. She returns to court July 12, when results of the exam will be discussed, court records show.

    Hearing on adult vs. juvenile court in boy's death rescheduled

    MANITOWOC (WLUK) -- A hearing to determine if a 15-year-old charged with reckless homicide for the death of a boy will stay in adult court has been pushed back to Oct. 28.
    [.....]
    In Wisconsin, children ages 10-16 charged with certain homicide counts have their cases handled in the adult court system from the start. However, the defense can ask for a "reverse waiver," seeking to send the case to juvenile court. Such a request is pending for Damian Hauschultz, but because he was appointed a new attorney late last month, the hearing was delayed from Friday to Oct. 28.

    Damian Hauschultz has been ordered to stand trial in adult court, but has not yet entered a plea in the case.
    [.....]
    Damian’s father, Timothy Hauschultz, 48, is charged with felony murder and five other charges. A hearing on a defense motion to have a charge of intentionally contributing to the delinquency of a minor causing death dismissed is scheduled for Aug. 13.

    Timothy’s wife, Tina McKeever-Hauschultz, 35, is charged with failing to prevent bodily harm, and intentionally contributing to the delinquency of a child. The results of a competency exam for her are scheduled for review at a July 12 hearing.

    Woman charged in Manitowoc Co. boy's death ruled incompetent to stand trial

    July 12th 2019

    "MANITOWOC (WLUK) – A woman charged in connection with the death of a 7-year-old boy has been ruled incompetent to stand trial...

    McKeever-Hauschultz, 35, is charged with failing to prevent bodily harm, and intentionally contributing to the delinquency of a child....

    Based on the findings of the psychiatric review, McKeever-Hauschultz was deemed incompetent to stand trial at this time, court records show. That means she cannot comprehend the proceedings and/or assist in her own defense.

    Judge Jerilyn Dietz ordered inpatient treatment with the Department of Health Services. Should she be deemed competent to stand trial in the future, the criminal case would resume. Her mental status will be reviewed next at a Sept. 30 hearing.

    The ruling does not address her mental state of the time of Ethan Hauschultz’s death; that issue could be raised at a later stage of the case, if it resumes....

    In Wisconsin, children ages 10-16 charged with certain homicide counts have their cases handled in the adult court system from the start. However, the defense can ask for a "reverse waiver," seeking to send the case to juvenile court. Such a request is pending for Damian Hauschultz, with a motions hearing scheduled for Oct. 28. No trial date has been set.
