A Monongalia County teenager convicted in the slaying of another teen is being transferred to an adult prison.
Monongalia County Circuit Court Judge Russell Clawges ruled Wednesday that Shoaf will serve her 30-year sentence in an adult prison.
Shoaf pleaded guilty in May 2013 to second-degree murder.
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.
Eddy pleaded guilty in January to first-degree murder. She's serving a life sentence at the Lakin Correctional Center and will be eligible for parole after 15 years.
