During the trial, state attorneys said Courtney Schulhoff hated her father because he didn't approve of her relationship and because he had stopped her from using his credit cards online. Attorneys said that she made sure her father was asleep, got the dog to leave the apartment and then made sure her boyfriend had a softball bat as a weapon.
Stephen Schulhoff was beaten to death as he slept.
The state said in its closing that a girl looking innocent doesn't make it so. Prosecutors said even though she didn't swing the bat, her alleged role in the plan to kill deserves prison.
