The two suspects accused of killing Dystiny Myers were in court Monday afternoon. The District Attorney has dropped the charges against Rhonda Wisto and Frank York for the attempted premeditated murder of Cody Miller.
Wisto and York both pleaded not guilty to murdering 15-year-old Dystiny Myers and will stand trial. Her body was found badly beaten and burned near Santa Margarita back in 2010.
Back in January, Cody Miller pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of the teenager and agreed to testify against the other suspects in the case.
Another defendant, Ty Michael Hill, was the first to plead guilty to first degree murder. Hill was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Miller will face 39 years to life with the possibility of parole when he is sentenced in May.
A fourth suspect, Jason Adam Greenwell, has made an agreement with the District Attorneys office to testify against the others in the case.
Meanwhile, jury selection gets started Wednesday in the case against Wisto and York.
