Sheila Eddy, one of the two suspects in the murder of Star City teenager Skylar Neese, pleaded not guilty to first degree murder and kidnapping charges in a Monongalia County courtroom Tuesday.

Neese was supposedly lured out of her house in July 2012, then stabbed to death. Her body was hidden under some branches in woods just across the Pennsylvania border.

Prosecutors say Eddy and friend Rachel Shoaf plotted the murder, though a potential motive hasn't been revealed.
 
Eddy's name became public this month, when prosecutors transferred her case from juvenile to adult court.
 
Shoaf has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is awaiting sentencing.

If the two girls that are accused of killiing Skylar were moved to adult status, and will be tried as adults, shouldn't they be held in an adult prison (rather than a juvenile facility) ?

They will BOTH get exactly what they deserve. The PROOF and FACTS will come out; justice will be served.
