Myers murder suspect was sodomized
August 8, 2012
One of the men awaiting trial for the brutal murder of 15-year-old Dystiny Myers said another defendant raped him before the murder, sources told CalCoastNews.
Following the torture murder of Myers, Cody Miller, 20, of Fresno was digging a grave to place the body when his former cohorts turned on him and began beating him in the face with a shovel. Miller escaped and was taken to a local hospital where he received facial surgery, had his jaw wired shut and was treated for his burns.
Ty Hill, 28, had driven to Fresno to bring Miller back to learn more about breaking and entering while Miller wanted to get information on the drug trade, sources said.
Prior to the murder, while Hill’s girlfriend Rhonda Wisto was gone from her home in Nipomo, Hill allegedly sodomized Miller, something frowned upon even in the drug culture.
In Sept. 2010 firefighters found Myer’s badly burned body of in a shallow grave near Santa Margarita. She was discovered hogtied with her legs bound behind her, a glove stuffed in her mouth, sweat pants tied around her throat and her hands duck taped across her chest.
Prosecutors said they plan to seek the death penalty for Hill, if he is convicted. [Tribune]
Jason Greenwell, 20, of Nipomo confessed and has agreed to testify against Wisto, Hill, Miller and Wisto’s son Frank York, 19. Their trial is set for Jan. 28.
