One man and two teenage boys are charged in Rusk County Court for the homicides of two people people earlier in June.

21-year-old Adam Rosolowski, 17-year-old Joseph Falk, and 16-year-old Tristan Shober are officially charged in the deaths of Robert and Bonnie Rosolowski, the grandparents of Adam.

It’s been two and a half weeks since the bodies of Robert and Bonnie Rosolowski were found in their Ladysmith home.

Thursday afternoon, the three men charged in their murders appeared in court.

According to the criminal complaint, Rosolowski, Falk, and Shober went to Rosolowski’s grandparents house on June 6.

The complaint goes on to say the three traveled to the house to kill Adam’s grandparents because he says they messed up his life.

The complaint says that Falk fired shots at Robert and Bonnie, and Adam fired at his grandmother.

Shober was the planned getaway driver.

While at the house, the three also got some clothes and a speaker, as well as tried to take the grandparents truck.

Robert and Bonnie’s bodies were found on June 7 by another one of their grandsons.

Rosolowski, Falk, and Shober are all charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, among other felonies.

If convicted, they face the possibility of life in prison with no parole.

All three are due back in court on Sept. 15 at 1 p.m. for a preliminary hearing.

Rosolowski is being held on a $1 million cash bond, while Falk and Shober each have a $500,000 bond
