Alyssa Bustamante, a 15-year old girl that is accused of the murder of a 9-year old girl has been indicted and will be tried as an adult. In a shocking crime beat tale that leaves even veteran investigators saddened and stunned, Bustamante allegedly plotted out the killing, then strangled, stabbed and cut the throat of her young neighbor Elizabeth Olten.
Police are contending this was very calculated, and that Bustamante dug a hole to be used as a grave “one week prior to the killing,” to make sure she could hide the little girl’s body. Why did she do it? “Ultimately, she stated she wanted to know what it felt like,” Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. David Rice testified Wednesday during a court hearing over the slaying.
The indictment came after the judge in the case ruled that Bustamante will stand trial as an adult. She is being held without bond in the Cole County jail.
The judge entered a “not guilty plea on behalf of Bustamante who sat speechless and shackled in the court room,” reports The Examiner.
