MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- A West Virginia teenager serving a 30-year sentence for second-degree murder is scheduled to return to court this week.

The Dominion Post reports that 17-year-old Rachel Shoaf's incarceration status will be discussed at Thursday's hearing in Monongalia County Circuit Court.

Shoaf has been incarcerated at a juvenile facility since she was sentenced in February. She could be transferred to Lakin Correctional Center when she turns 18.

Prosecutors say Shoaf and 18-year-old co-defendant Shelia Eddy lured 16-year-old Skylar Neese from her home and stabbed her to death in 2012. Neese's body was left in a wooded area across the border in Pennsylvania.

Eddy pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in January. She was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years.
