MADISON, Wis. -- A judge is expected to decide this week whether to let a teenager's guilty pleas in a fatal fire stand.
Prosecutors have accused Jeremy Wand of Argyle of helping his brother, Armin Wand III, set a house fire last year that killed Armin Wand's three sons, severely injured Armin Wand's wife and killed her unborn child.

Jeremy Wand has pleaded guilty in LaFayette County Circuit Court to multiple felonies but now wants to withdraw the pleas. He says he was pressured into taking a deal. Armin Wand's wife also has recanted statements implicating the brothers in the fire.
Thomas Vale, a Green County judge handling the case, has scheduled a hearing on the request for Thursday.
Armin Wand was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences in April.
