FAIRFIELD, Iowa (AP) — Two southeastern Iowa teenagers have pleaded not guilty to killing their high school Spanish teacher. Sixteen-year-olds Willard Noble Chaiden Miller and Jeremy Everett Goodale are charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the killing Nohema Graber in Fairfield. The 66-year-old Graber was reported missing on Nov. 2 and her remains were found later that day in a local park. Authorities say she suffered “inflicted trauma to the head.” Miller and Goodale, who are being held in juvenile detention centers, entered their pleas in arraignment documents filed with the court Monday. Authorities haven’t disclosed a possible motive for the killing.
