Sheila Eddy, 17, is the second teen who police said played a role in the murder of Skylar Neese. And on Wednesday, she left the courtroom being considered an adult.

Sheila has been in custody for months, but because of her age her name hadn't been released until after she was transferred to adult status following Wednesday's hearing.

Dave Neese said he's known about Sheila's involvement for a while, but when he initially found out he was disturbed. "She's sick. She needs help and hopefully she's going to get locked up for a long time and get the help she needs," he said.

In May, the other suspect, Rachel Shoaf, told investigators the two stabbed Skylar to death in July of 2012. Shoaf also told them they left her body on the side of a road in Greene County, Pennsylvania.

Dave Neese also stated Sheila was at his house and helped his family search for Skykar when she was missing. "When she came to our house that day she went with my wife and one of my wife's friends down the road knocking on doors looking for Skylar, seeing if anybody had seen her or talked to her," he said.

Investigators said her case will be presented to a grand jury and she could be indicted by the end of the week.

Dave said he hopes the justice system pulls through. He said, "Now the courts need to do their job, which they have done so far, and put them away forever."

Rachel has already pleaded guilty to second degree murder as an adult. No word yet on how much jail time Sheila could face.
