APPLETON — In court Thursday, prosecutors focused on showing the man accused of killing his children in Kaukauna not only lied to investigators but also had a motive of not wanting to pay child support.


Matthew Beyer, 38, is charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the deaths of his two children, 5-year-old William Beyer and 3-year-old Danielle Beyer, who were found dead by police on Feb. 17, 2020, in the upper level of a Crooks Avenue duplex in Kaukauna.
