WAUPACA, Wis. (AP) - The case of a Tigerton teenager charged in the death of a man whose body was found in a Waupaca County ditch last spring will stay in adult court.

Sixteen-year-old Zachary Hohn is charged with murder and robbery in the death of 25-year-old Matthew Pagel, whose body was found April 11 near Clintonville. Authorities say his death was tied to a drug deal.

WLUK-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2etYwuX ) that Hohn’s attorneys sought to have his case moved to juvenile court, but Judge Raymond Huber on Tuesday rejected the request.

Hohn is scheduled to enter pleas Tuesday, the same day the second suspect in the case is scheduled to appear for a status conference. Twenty-four-year-old Adam Ozuna, of Bear Creek, has pleaded not guilty to murder and robbery.
