Sam Young Appearing in Court for the Dymia Woody Murder Tommorow

Dymia Woody was a innocent little girl stolen from her family too soon. In the summer of 2008 the little girl was found murdered, stuffed into the closet of an abandoned mobile home just yards from her house. She had been raped and strangled and DNA testing led police to then 14-year-old Sam Young.

Young has been moved out of family court and will be tried as an adult now. The Woody family is finally going to get some closure. From Fox Carolina:

GREENVILLE, S.C. — The teen charged in connection with the slaying of a Greenville County girl nearly two years ago is expected to be in court on Wednesday.


In August 2009, a judge ruled that jurisdiction for the now 16-year-old Young be transferred to general sessions court instead of family court.

Prosecutors said that the ruling means that Young will be tried as an adult rather than a juvenile, which he had been charged as until Friday.

Marcia Barker, from the 13th Circuit Solicitor’s Office, said that Young will be in court to plead, but did not say to what he will plead.

We’ll keep you posted. keep the Woody family in your prayers.
