New Trial Date for Accused Fairfield Teen


A trial date for a Fairfield teenager accused of murdering a teacher was announced.

The jury trial for Jeremy Goodale, 17, has been scheduled for May 15th at the Scott County Courthouse in Davenport.

Goodale’s pre-trial conference is slated for May 4th at the Jefferson County Courthouse in Fairfield.

Goodale has been charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit a forcible felony. He’s pleaded not guilty.

Authorities say Goodale and Willard Miller, 17, beat 66-year-old Nohema Graber to death with a baseball bat and hid her body under a tarp and railroad ties. Goodale and Miller were both 16 when the killing occurred last November. Investigators say the pair later bragged about the murder on social media.
