Final Myers defendant sentenced

May 29, 2013

Jason GreenwellA San Luis Obispo judge sentenced Jason Greenwell, the only defendant who testified in the Dystiny Myers murder trial, to 15 years to life in prison Tuesday.

Greenwell pled guilty to second-degree murder in exchange for his testimony. His plea agreement with the District Attorney’s Office makes him eligible for parole after 15 years.

The sentencing of Greenwell concludes the Myers case. The other four defendants each received sentences of life in prison without the possibility of parole for their involvement in the 2010 murder of the 15-year-old runaway girl.

In September 2010, firefighters found Myers’ body burned and buried in a shallow grave near Santa Margarita with her legs bound behind her, sweatpants tied around her throat and a glove stuffed in her mouth.

Greenwell testified that Rhonda Wisto, who was housing Myers at the time, ordered the murder and that Ty Hill helped plan the killing.

Wisto, as well as her son Frank York, stood trial and received first-degree murder convictions with torture and kidnapping enhancements. Hill accepted a plea deal of life in prison without parole in order to avoid the death penalty.

The fifth defendant Cody Miller also agreed to a plea deal resulting in a life in prison without the possibility of parole. Miller, however, requested that he not receive eligibility for parole because he said he does belong in society.

As part of his testimony, Greenwell passed on Myers’ final words as she was beaten to death.

“She said tell her mom that she loved her,” Greenwell said.

    All of the horrendous crimes and murders committed in CA can not be measured on the scale of justice as handed down, no crime can be easily adjudicated. Most perps plead and get a reduced sentence from the one imposed.
    This was a horrendous and outrageous crime acted out solely in order to punish a “diss” and end a life that stood in the way of drug profits. These scumbags would have gotten hopped up and misbehaved regardless of location nor persons involved.
    This could have been your daughter, for crying out loud…
