The Trial of Joseph Mattox

The trial of Joseph Mattox began on Mon 4-4-11. It is expected to last all of this week and into next. Mattox is the last of the three Johnson County men to stand trial for their role in the kidnapping, beating and stabbing death of 18-year-old Keighley Alyea.

Her ex-boyfriend got the Hard 50. More here

This puke is supposed to be the one that beat her with a tire iron. I wonder if he still feels like a “man” locked up. This is the reason to implement the death penalty and faster than it usually takes. Why should the general public foot the bill to keep this trash alive? He didn’t worry about defenseless Keighley.

I am not even going to forward a link to Fox 4’s news article, because it was written so poorly they didn’t even bother to get her name in the right order. Quality journalism there.

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
