The teenagers Willard M. (left) and Jeremy G. are accused of murder.
A Spanish teacher is said to have been brutally murdered by her own students in the United States. The crime happened on November 2, 2021 in the state of Iowa. Now the suspects Willard M.* (17) and Jeremy G.* (17) are in court. Prosecutors revealed shocking details on Tuesday.
The teacher Nohema G.* († 66) is said to have been killed because M. was angry about his bad grades, reports the “New York Post”.
According to investigators, Willard M., who was 16 at the time, met with his teacher at Fairfield High School on the day of the crime to discuss his poor grades. Some time later, the woman then drove her van to a park where she often went for walks. A day later her body was found in this park.
Killed with baseball bat
Investigators believe the two teenagers beat Nohema G. to death with a baseball bat.
M. himself confirmed to the police that he was frustrated with the bad grade, which lowered his overall grade point average. But he denied being involved in his teacher’s murder.
He later stated that he “knew about everything” but did not kill her himself. Instead, masked children are said to have killed the teacher and then forced Jeremy G. to make the body disappear – according to the defendant’s version.
Stuffed with murder on Snapchat
But according to eyewitnesses, two male people left the park with the teacher’s van. And that was less than an hour after the woman drove into it. The car was then parked at the end of a country road.
After the fact, Jeremy G. is said to have reported the murder in a Snapchat message with a friend. A witness provided relevant screenshots of the conversation, according to investigators. In it, G. is said to have named himself and his buddy M. as those involved in the murder.
The two 17-year-olds accused of murder will be tried as soon as they come of age to be judged under adult criminal law. Thus the trial of Jeremy G. will take place in Davenport on December 5th and of Willard M. on March 20th in Council Bluffs. (lrc)
