One of Skylar Neese's killers agreed to be sent to an adult prison once she reaches the age of 18 on Wednesday. Now Skylar's father is speaking out about Rachel Shoaf's decision to waive a hearing which was originally scheduled to take place on Thursday.
Since Shoaf's sentencing in February, where she was ordered to serve 30 years in prison for second degree murder, she's been held in a juvenile facility. Shoaf turns 18-years-old on June 10 and within the next 45 days she'll be moved to an adult prison.
There's no word on what facility Shoaf will be housed at. Prosecutors are saying the Department of Corrections will make its own decision once she is officially transferred. There's a possibility of her ending up at the same prison where her co-conspirator, Sheila Eddy, is already located. Eddy is being housed at the Lakin Correctional Center.
Shoaf will be eligible for parole in 10 years and Skylar's father is saying he plans to attend all future court proceedings, but for the mean time her agreement iallows the Neese family to breathe a small sigh of relief for two reasons.
"Number one I don't have to look at her face anymore. Number two I don't have to be close to her or in the same courtroom with her," said Dave Neese.
On Wednesday, Shoaf asked for her sentence to be reduced and the judge denied the request.
