Skylar Neese's Father Reacts to Rachel Shoaf Prison Agreement

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.

They both should never see daylight again! WOW; in WV now you can murder a person for no reason and get out in 10 years. BRING BACK DEATH PENALTY.

Anyone at any age that can intentionally murder another human being and laugh about it and talk about it like it was the funnest thing they ever did; DOES NOT DESERVE TO LIVE and certainly is a danger to everyone in the public. DEMENTED; DERANGED UNSTABLE WICKED EVIL MURDERERS should NOT be given parole or less than LIFE; (preferably they should be EXECUTED ASAP!) But bleeding heart deceitful liberals like to feel more sympathy for murderers than they do for the victims.....unless of course it would be against them or their family member. Time for capital punishment to be brought back to WV; vote liberals OUT!!!
