Original Post HERE

On July 13th, 2010, Dustin Hilt was handed down the sentence of Life in Prison. He will have no chance of parole for a minimum of 50 years, getting what is called the Hard 50 sentence. Dustin Hilt was also sentenced to a 165-month consecutive sentence for aggravated kidnapping and 61 months for aggravated robbery.

Keighley Alyea disappeared without a trace. Her car was found and her phone had not been used. Her body was found Monday October 5, 2009 in Cass County, Mo. Three arrests were made. One of the charged, Dustin Hilt, is the ex-boyfriend of Keighley Alyea. Dustin Hilt, 18, Joseph Mattox, 21, and Gerald Calbeck, 18, were all charged with first-degree murderaggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping in Johnson County court.

Motive and method out now are said to be that his ex-girlfriend, Keighley Alyea, had confronted him for reportedly sleeping with her stepsister. All but Hilt have clean Johnson County records and the charges that Hilt has faced previously had all been dropped by the prosecution.

The body was found in a field near East 235th Street and State Route K just north of Harrisonville on October 5, 2009.

It takes quite the man to be one of three beating an 18 year old girl to death with a jack handle. If you believe that you are in an abusive relationship but are not sure, please read this from Stanford, or call

The Murder of 18-year old Keighley Alyea

——————UPDATE——————-

Yesterday, 1-19-10, a Johnson County Judge ruled there is enough evidence to go to trial. Hilt is the only one of the three that did not waive his right to a speedy trial. He will be back in March.
Gruesome details of how Keighley was murdered were revealed in yesterday’s court hearing. These cowards had an opportunity, it seems, to offer Keighley help after the initial round of beating and they chose not to.
It is for wimps like this that the death penalty is too kind.

Keighley Alyea disappeared last week without a trace. Her car was found recently and her phone had not been used. Her body was found Monday October 5, 2009 in Cass County, Mo. Three arrests were made Monday night and charges were made on Tuesday. One of the charged, Dustin Hilt, is the ex-boyfriend of Keighley Alyea. Dustin Hilt, 18, Joseph Mattox, 21, and Gerald Calbeck, 18, were all charged with first-degree murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping in Johnson County court.

Motive and method have not been made public if even known yet. All but Hilt have clean Johnson County records and the charges that Hilt has faced previously had all been dropped by the prosecution.

The body was found in a field near East 235th Street and State Route K just north of Harrisonville on October 5, 2009.

These persons have only been charged and have not been found guilty or sentenced. KCMugshots is only releasing names due to the extensive publicity this case has already received. It was on Nancy Grace last night for goodness sake. All persons charged are innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.

W ell, this story hit the streets a couple of days ago and I was too lazy to type it up. However, procratination is saying this is turning out to be  a case of mistaken identity.

These three, Douglas Stangeland, 46, of Nevada, Mo., and Lonnie Swarnes, 44, and Andrew Wadel, 21, both of Rich Hill, are currently accused of kidnapping Jeffrey Muller from in front of his petstore in Newton, New Jersey.
However, it is now coming out that they may have kidnapped the wrong guy. They grabbed Mueller and drove him across the eastern half of the country to Lake Ozark, Mo before they had car problems. While at a gas station, Muller took off and the store employee called the cops, after seeing the flee.
“Based on the investigation thus far, we believe this to be a case of mistaken identity,” said Gregory Mueller, an assistant prosecutor in Sussex County, N.J.
