Two teenagers accused of killing a Fairfield high school Spanish teacher last year had their appeals to ban the public from a hearing declined by the Iowa Supreme Court Thursday.
Jeremy Everett Goodale, 17, and Willard Noble Chaiden Miller, 16, have been charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Nohema Graber, 66, with a baseball bat in November, according to court documents.
Both teens are charged as adults.
They had appealed a decision by 8th Judicial District Judge Shawn Showers that would allow the public and the news media to attend a hearing about sending their case to Juvenile Court.
Goodale’s trial is set for Aug. 23 and Miller for Nov. 1.
