Jury To Decide Verdict In Myers Murder Trial

Dystiny-MyersThe Dystiny Myers murder trial is now in the hands of a jury.

The prosecution rested its case against Rhonda Wisto and Frank York on Tuesday and gave closing arguments yesterday. So did the defense.

Wisto and York are two of five suspects accused of killing the 15-year-old girl back in September of 2010. Myer’s body was found beaten and burned near Santa Margarita.

Cody Miller and Ty Michael Hill have already been sentenced for their involvement in her murder.

Jason Greenwell accepted a plea deal with the District Attorney's Office.

In his closing arguments, assistant D.A. Tim Covello labled York a child molester and said he was sexually involved with Myers. York’s attorney then asked for a mistrial, saying the trial was highly prejudicial. The judge Barry Labarbera denied it.
