From Bill Lindelof:
Prosecutors filed a motion today to try 14-year-old Tylar Marie Witt as an adult in the homicide of her mother in El Dorado County.
"We have filed a fitness petition for her to be deemed not fit for juvenile court," said El Dorado Chief Assistant District Attorney Bill Clark.
The motion on whether she will be tried as an adult or a juvenile is scheduled to be heard Aug. 24. The juvenile court appearance in Placerville by Witt today took only about 15 minutes.
Witt and her 19-year-old boyfriend, Steven Paul Colver, are suspects in the killing of Joanne M. Witt.
