Witnesses: Kruthoff Got Mixed Up With Wrong Group Of Friends

Attorneys for 18-year-old confessed-killer Trevor Kruthoff want his case transferred to juvenile court.

Kruthoff is charged in connection with the December 2013 murder of 20-year-old Jordan LeBeau.

Police say Kruthoff and Watertown High School classmate Brian Anderson were recruited by LeBeau’s drug-dealing friends to rob LeBeau.  When LeBeau’s father walked in on the robbery, Kruthoff ended up shooting and killing Jordan LeBeau.

Kruthoff was 17 years old at the time of the crime.

Witnesses who testified Thursday describe Kruthoff as a good kid who got mixed up with marijuana and the wrong group of friends.
