One of the teenage girls convicted of killing 16-year-old Skylar Neese was supposed to appear in court for a hearing on Thursday, but according to the Monongalia Prosecuting Attorney's Office the hearing has been called off.
Officials are saying 17-year-old Rachel Shoaf has waived her right to a hearing and has signed an agreement with prosecutors to be transferred to an adult correctional facility after her 18th birthday. She's currently being held in a juvenile facility and turns 18 on June 10.
Shoaf has been convicted of second degree murder in connection the Skylar's death. She's currently serving a 30-year sentence and will be eligible for parole in 10 years.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia teenager serving a 30-year sentence for second-degree murder is scheduled to return to court this week.
The Dominion Post reports that 17-year-old Rachel Shoaf's incarceration status will be discussed at Thursday's hearing in Monongalia County Circuit Court.
Shoaf has been incarcerated at a juvenile facility since she was sentenced in February. She could be transferred to Lakin Correctional Center when she turns 18.
Prosecutors say Shoaf and 18-year-old co-defendant Shelia Eddy lured 16-year-old Skylar Neese from her home and stabbed her to death in 2012. Neese's body was left in a wooded area across the border in Pennsylvania.
Eddy pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in January. She was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years.
