MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – A West Virginia girl indicted in the 2012 stabbing death of her onetime best friend has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges in Morgantown.
Seventeen-year-old Shelia Eddy was arraigned Tuesday in Monongalia County Circuit Court.
Star City teen Skylar Neese was lured out of her house in July 2012, then stabbed to death. Her body was hidden under some branches in woods just across the Pennsylvania border.
Prosecutors say Eddy and friend Rachel Shoaf plotted the murder, though a potential motive hasn't been revealed.
Eddy's name became public this month, when prosecutors transferred her case from juvenile to adult court.
Shoaf has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is awaiting sentencing.
