Ty Hill pleads guilty to murder, no death penalty
January 2, 2013
Ty Hill pled guilty to participating in the murder of Dystiny Myers on Wednesday in exchange for taking the death penalty off the table.
Hill was facing the death penalty while his four co-defendants are facing murder charges in the 2010 murder of Myers.
In a plea agreement reached with the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s office, Hill agreed to plead guilty to murder with two enhancements in exchange for life in prison without the possibility of parole.
In 2010, firefighters found the badly burned body of Myers, 15, in a shallow grave near Santa Margarita. She was found hogtied with her legs bound behind her, a glove stuffed in her mouth, one of her eyes plucked out, sweat pants tied around her throat and her hands duck taped across her chest.
Jason Greenwell of Nipomo confessed and has agreed to testify against Rhonda Wisto, Cody Miller and Wisto’s son Frank York. Their trial is set for Feb. 4.
