Kingsley Teen Admits To Killing Brother

Date posted - February 22, 2012

A young Kingsley teen has basically admitted that he shot his step-brother.

Fourteen-year-old William “Billy” Noll did the juvenile court equivalent of pleading guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter, according to court records.  As a result of the plea, prosecutors agreed to drop a charge of willful injury.

Noll is accused in the December 9th death of 17-year-old Kyle Badgerow who was shot in the chest in the rural Kingsley home where the step-brothers lived.

The juvenile court equivalent of a sentencing — called a “dispositional hearing” — was scheduled for 1 PM on March 16th.  One of several options will be chosen at that time.  They include foster care, residential treatment, or a state institution.
