A 15 year old girl pleaded guilty yesterday to the first degree murder of her mom. Tylar Witt, who was 14 at the time of the murder, was upset at her mother for reading her diary. In the diary, Tylar admitted she had been having sex with her boyfriend who was 19 at the time. Tylar's mom had gone to the police and wanted the boyfriend charged with statutory rape.
Well, according to prosecutors, Tylar drugged her mom and then Tylar's boyfriend then stabbed the mom to death. In her plea, Tylar does not admit to stabbing her mom, just participating in the murder. As long as she testifies against her former boyfriend truthfully, she will only be sentenced to 15 years to life in jail.
This absolutely blows my mind. I would love to know how the two teens thought by murdering Tylar's mother that everything would go away. After committing the murder, the two teens dyed their hair and then fled to San Francisco where they were found after a couple of days.
