Willard Noble Chaiden Miller and Jeremy Everett Goodale, both 16, face first degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in connection with the November 2 death of Nohema Graber, who worked at Fairfield High School in Iowa.

Graber was found dead in Chautauqua Park shortly after her disappearance.

No official cause of death was disclosed, but police said the victim suffered “head trauma”.

Prosecutors described the murder as ruthless and premeditated.

It is alleged that the two students watched Graber’s whereabouts before grabbing the teacher on her daily walk and dragging her into the woods where they later returned to hide her body under a tarp and wheelbarrow.

“The nature and circumstances of the alleged criminal act are as serious as they exist in the Iowa Penal Code,” Jefferson County District Attorney Chauncy Molding said in Goodale’s file obtained by The Daily News.

“This prosecutor cannot imagine any combination of programs at an Iowa juvenile facility that could appropriately treat or rehabilitate the accused if he is tried as a juvenile.”

The prosecution also argued that if Goodale had been charged as a minor he would have been released after two years, even if he was convicted of murder, whereas if he was found guilty as an adult, the two teenagers could be sentenced to life in prison.

The defendants have pleaded not guilty and are in juvenile custody on cash bond of CAN $ 1,274,750.00 (or US $ 1 million) each.
