Pietrzak, 18, had been missing for a week before officials found his body in September 2017. Three people were arrested in connection to the murder.

Investigators say Price, Dearld Peal and Wesley White worked together to kidnap Pietrzak, bind him and beat him up. Officials say the victim was left tied up in a field to die and slowly strangled to death because of the ropes.
