Neighbors living in the neighborhood where 15-year-old Dystiny Myers had been staying before being brutally killed are reacting to Monday's testimony.
Investigators believe Myers was attacked by five suspects at a Nipomo home in the 300 block of Mars Court.
In the preliminary hearing on Monday, the coroner who examined her body said Myers suffered from choking, blunt force trauma and a meth overdose.
He also said Myers had a pair of sweatpants tied tightly around her neck and a cloth glove stuffed into her mouth and upper airway.
The Santa Maria girl was found badly burned last September in a shallow grave off Highway 58 in Santa Margarita.
Five people have plead not guilty to first-degree murder charges in the case.
They are Cody Miller, Jason Greenwell, Ty Hill, Frank York and Rhonda Wisto.
