West Virginia teen sentenced to 30 years in prison for 2nd-degree murder in teen's 2012 death

A West Virginia teenager has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for her role in her friend's death.

Seventeen-year-old Rachel Shoaf apologized before being sentenced Wednesday in Monongalia County Circuit Court. She pleaded guilty last May to second-degree murder in the July 2012 death of 16-year-old Skylar Neese.

Media outlets report that Judge Russell Clawges ordered Shoaf to serve her sentence in a state prison. She'll remain in a juvenile facility until her 18th birthday.

Co-defendant Shelia Eddy was sentenced Jan. 24 to life in prison with the possibility of parole for first-degree murder.

Neese was lured from her home, stabbed to death and her body left in the woods. Prosecutors never divulged a motive. Shoaf told police the girls no longer wanted to be friends with Neese.
