  • September 7, 2013

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A grand jury in Morgantown has indicted a teenage girl suspected of plotting with another girl to kill her longtime best friend.

Media outlets report a Monongalia County grand jury indicted Shelia Eddy on Friday on one count each of first-degree murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy.

Earlier this week, Eddy’s case was moved from juvenile to adult court.

Eddy is accused along with a classmate, 16-year-old Rachel Shoaf, with luring Skylar Neese out of her Star City home last summer, driving her into the Pennsylvania woods and stabbing her to death at an agreed-upon moment. The motive has never been revealed.

Shoaf has already pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is awaiting sentencing. She told police the girls no longer wanted to be friends with Skylar.
