Teen Kills His 3 Nephews for $300 ... Promised by Their Father!

by Kiri Blakeley Friday at 11:53 AM

19-year-old Wisconsin boy did the absolutely unthinkable. He killed his three young nephews and tried to kill his young niece and his pregnant sister-in-law -- all by burning down their house. He did this even though their mother, Sharon Wand, treated him like a son. The three young boys died. His 2-year-old niece, Jessica, survived, but no thanks to teen killer Jeremy Wand, who tried to throw her back into the flames when it looked like she might escape. And he did it all for $300. He's been sentenced to life in prison. But the judge ruled that he's eligible for parole. Why? Because the judge believes he was being coerced and influenced. By his brother and mother!!!

Reportedly, Jeremy Wand's eldest brother, Armin, wanted his wife, four kids, and unborn childall dead. All gone. Why?

So he could "start afresh." With their cashed in insurance policies.

Yep, he didn't want to take the divorce route -- even though the couple's divorce was almost finalized. He wanted to exterminate the entire family he had willingly built himself -- just because he wanted a new life. We've heard this heinous story before and no doubt we will hear it again. The dark side of human nature is very dark indeed.

Armin (who was found guilty and is serving life in prison) apparently talked his brother into helping him burn down the house and kill his family. He would pay him $300.

The capper? Allegedly Armin and Jeremy's mom thought the whole thing was a fine idea. She thought her son Armin deserved a fresh start too. Even if that meant murdering all of her grandchildren and her daughter-in-law.

This sounds like a family that had no morals. A family of sociopaths. And Jeremy, whether he was one or not, grew up in it. Had his mind formed by his mother and older brother from the time he was a child.

Who knows if he could have ever found the willpower to think independently?

At what age is a child supposed to form their own moral character? And can they do that when everyone else in the family has none?

Apparently the judge thinks that Jeremy might deserve a second chance. Hell, this is one person who might do better in prison than being around his own family.

It's easy to say, "He was 19. Old enough to know what he was doing." And it takes a special kind of cruelty and inhumanity to throw a screaming toddler back into a fire. He killed three young boys who "adored" him, according to Sharon. He tried to kill his sister-in-law and niece. Sharon Wand ended up having a miscarriage, so he killed another child too.

It takes a subhuman to do all of this.

But this is all he ever knew. This kind of mind. The subhuman, sociopathic mind.

I am not convinced he deserves a second chance. He's most likely a lost cause. However, even Sharon Wand, who has gone through the worst thing any human being can, thinksJeremy deserves a chance at parole. When the judge asked her, she replied, "He’s a really good guy. I love him dearly." And admitted he was under the influence of his "abusive" older brother.

It all makes you think about the family's you're born into -- and whether you can ever escape them.

Jeremy Wand to serve 3 life sentences

Wand will be eligible for parole in 35 years

Jeremy Wand in Lafayette County court

MADISON, Wis. -

Jeremy Wand, the man accused of helping to burn histhree young nephews alive, will serve three life sentences.

Sharon Wand, the mother of the three boys and who was burned over 85 percent of her body, has become the center of the high-profile case. At one point, she recanted that Jeremy Wand was even there to start the fire but she took a different stand during Jeremy Wand's sentencing.

Authorities said Sharon Wand was the victim of an insurance scam when her husband and his brother allegedly lit the family on fire at their home to get the insurance money.

Thursday, Sharon Wand called out her brother-in-law, saying that she still loved him but she hated him for what he did. She also said she lives every day knowing that her children are gone because of Jeremy Wand’s selfishness.

“You ripped out my heart by taking my children from me and changing my life and Jessica’s life forever. Is that how you count your days, Jeremy? Is that how you count the days since the days you killed your nephews?” she said at the sentencing.

Sharon Wand and her daughter were able to escape the fire, but she was also pregnant at the time and lost her baby.

Jeremy Wand will be eligible for parole in 35 years. He is currently 19.

Armin Wand, Sharon Wand’s husband, has already been sentenced to three life terms without parole.
