Alyssa was in court this week and her attorney has entered a not-guilty plea to charges of first degree murder and armed criminal action in the October 21 stabbing and strangling of 9 year old Elizabeth Olten.
The arraignment Tuesday lasted one minute as Bustamante sat silently in the courtroom and carefully avoided eye contact with anyone.
Yesterday Alyssa’s attorney asked that the trial be moved outside Cole County because the locals there are biased against her. The attorney says there is no way she can get a fair trial in Cole County because they are so prejudiced against her. If she is found guilty for this she willmost likely be sentenced to life in prison.
