Suspect in 12 year old attempted murder case back in court, wants re-sentencing

by

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - A 12 year old high-profile kidnapping and attempted murder case was back in Sheboygan County Court Wednesday.

The case involves Renata Neuaone, who is currently serving a 22 year sentence in the Taycheedah women’s prison for attempting to hang a 20 year old woman from the railroad trestle near the Blue Line Ice Center in December of 2001.  The victim, who was involved in a dispute over the drug, ecstasy, was saved when the rope broke.

Neuaone’s attorney is seeking a re-sentencing.  He argued in court that Neuanone received 22 years, while her husband, Somkith, a local drug lord who orchestrated the incident from his jail cell, only received 8 years.  And Troy Olmsted, the accomplice who pushed the victim, only got 12 years.  The attorney argued that psychological testing at Taycheedah showed Renata suffered from a personality disorder, which may have been responsible for her behavior.

Judge L. Edward Stengel said he would review documents in the case and issue an oral ruling at a later date.
