Iowa Teens Pleaded Guilty for Murder of Spanish Teacher
The Iowa teens Willard Miller and Jeremy Goodale, who pleaded guilty to murder, were sentenced to life in prison with a possibility of parole after 35 years. According to People, the Iowa teens killed their Spanish teacher because of the bad grades that they got from her. The victim is Nohema Graber, 66.
The victim was having her regular afternoon walk at a park in Fairfield when the Iowa teens struck her with a baseball bat to death. BBC reported that one of the Iowa teens, Willard Miller, was sentenced to life in prison and ordered to pay the victim’s family at least $150,000.
The authorities claim that the Iowa teens followed her after discussing the bad grades they got from Graber. The Spanish teacher was dead on the spot after being beaten to death by the Iowa teens.
