TEEN MURDER PLOT
Monongalia County judge transfers teen convicted in friend's slaying to adult prison

Reported by: Associated Press
Thursday, June 5, 2014 7:25 AM EDT
MORGANTOWN, W.Va.


A Monongalia County teenager convicted in the slaying of another teen is being transferred to an adult prison.

Media outlets report that 17-year-old Rachel Shoaf waived her right to a hearing on her incarceration status. Shoaf will turn 18 on June 10.

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.
