Teen guilty of killing his principal

August 03, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

A jury in Baraboo convicted a 16-year-old boy of shooting his high school principal to death after the boy brought a rifle and revolver to school last fall.

Eric Hainstock was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide in the death of Weston Schools Principal John Klang. He could face life in prison at his sentencing today.

Hainstock's attorneys conceded he killed Klang. They argued the teen was troubled, suffered from attention deficit disorder and was mocked in school. They said he brought the guns to school only to make people listen.
