SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY, Calif- Testimony continued Wednesday in the murder case of Dystiny Myers, the 15-year-old Santa Maria girl whose burned body was discovered two years ago. At times the testimony in this motion case is gruesome. "He also stated it was like killing a fly with a bazooka," said Deputy John Mckenney from the SLO Sheriff's Office, explaining what Cody Miller, a defendant in the murder said about Myers .
The motion was filed to determine what evidence will be admitted for trial. It all surrounds Cody Millers statements made the day Dystiny Myers was killed. "He told us that he participated because if he didn't he would be injured or something bad would happen to him basically," said Sheriff's Detective Eric Twisselman. A statement Miller told Sheriff Deputies and Fire Fighters.
Deputy John Mckenney was assigned to guard Miller while Miller was in the hospital after finding him on Park Hill Road, where Myers body was found burned. "Numerous times he had been looking around the emergency room trying to look through the windows trying to see if Ty Hill was going to come in and get him," said Mckenney.
According to testimony, Miller was ordered to keep Myers quiet and beat her. Mckenney said Miller told him he was also ordered to carry Myers up a hill and drop her in a hole. "He found himself lying in the hole after she had been dumped in there, he stood up, he got knocked back into the hole, he got up and started running, he was chased by Jacob and he said he didn't believe Jacob tried very hard to catch him," said Mckenney.
On November 17th, it will be decided what evidence from testimony heard over the last three days will be admitted into evidence for trial.
