Mid-Missouri teen killer will stay behind bars

Alyssa Bustamante

A judge has denied the request from a mid-Missouri teen killer to set aside her guilty plea from 2012. Alyssa Bustamante testified in court in January that she wouldn’t have pleaded guilty to the slaying of her neighbor 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten if she would have known about a pending U.S. Supreme Court case involving juvenile murder defendants. Bustamante was facing charges of first degree murder, but pleaded guilty to second degree murder in January, and was granted life in prison with the possibility of parole. Bustamante was just 15 years old when she brutally murdered Olten, and buried her in a wooded area in Jefferson City.
