MORGANTOWN (WVVA) -- A West Virginia teenager is sentenced to life in prison for killing her former best friend and leaving her body in the woods.

Sheila Eddy pleaded guilty to first degree murder.  She will be eligible for parole after serving 15 years of her sentence.

Eddy and her friend, Rachel Shoaf, were accused of luring their friend, Skylar Neese out of her home, stabbing her to death and dumping her body in a forest.  These events took place during the summer of 2012.

Shoaf pleaded guilty to second degree murder last year.  She is yet to be sentenced.

The motive behind the murder has not been revealed.
