5 NEWS UPDATE:

Sheila Eddy admitted Friday afternoon that she, along with Rachel Shoaf, murdered Skylar Neese.

 
Eddy decided to plead guilty to first degree murder with mercy. She was sentenced to life in prison with mercy which will make her eligible for parole after 15 years. 
 
During the hearing, she was very emotional with tears streaming down here face, and broken words as she spoke to the judge.
 
Eddy was asked a series of questions to ensure she understood her plea.
 
Dave Neese, Skylar's father, said he's happy to see Eddy ultimately get what she deserves, but he said there will never be closure, because his daughter is someone you could never close.
 
"She got what she deserved, and she's going to be in a place with people just like her. There won't be closure because Skylar is someone you can never close," said Dave Neese, Skylar's father
 
Shoaf pleaded guilty to second degree murder in May and is awaiting sentencing.
 
Neese disappeared July 6, 2012 after sneaking out of a window at her home

ORIGINAL STORY

One of the suspects in the murder case of 16-year-old Sylar Neese will appear in court on Friday afternoon for a hearing.

Sheila Eddy, 18, is facing a possible first degree murder conviction in connection with the 2012 slaying. Friday's hearing was just recently scheduled, and the trial is supposed to start next Tuesday.

Eddy is one of the two girls who investigators claim killed Neese and then dumped her body on the side of a road in Pennsylvania.

Eddy pleaded not guilty last year in September.

Rachel Shoaf is the other girl who prosecutors believe was involved. She has already pleaded guilty to second degree murder and is awaiting sentencing.
