UPDATED: A Kansas judge has decided there is enough evidence for three young men to stand trial for the murder of 18-year-old Keighley Aylea.
January 19, 2010
<snipped>
Overland Park, Kan., police said Joe Mattox and Scott Calbeck confessed to killing Aylea last September. Police said Aylea's former boyfriend, Dustin Hilt had not confessed, but prosecutors have charged all three with first degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and robbery.

Testimony at Tuesday's preliminary hearing included never before released details about Aylea's murder. Detectives said Alyea was still alive after her abductors thought they had beaten her to death and stuffed her in the trunk of her car. Police said confessions from Mattox and Calbeck revealed the three men, all 18 at the time of the crime, heard Alyea screaming and pounding from inside the trunk, begging for help.

Police said the three suspects pulled the car over, took her out of the trunk and asked if she would rat them out. Detectives said Alyea promised to tell no one and begged the three men to drop her off at a hospital. Instead, police said Hilt stabbed her with a hunting knife in the stomach and Calbeck admitted to kicking her in the head. In all, Aylea suffered at least 29 stab wounds, at least nine to the chest. Detectives said she had been smothered and had been beaten around her head and neck.

Mattox told police that Hilt wanted to hurt Alyea and take her car, but never mentioned murder as part of the plan. But Calbeck told investigators it was Mattox who mentioned wanting to kill Alyea and who first attacked her with a metal jack handle in the back of her car as they drove her around.

A motive was not revealed except that police said that Calbeck said Mattox just went crazy in the back seat.

Three men charged in murder of 18-year-old

Keighley Ann Alyea begged for her life, police testified Tuesday, but her killers took it anyway.

The 18-year-old from Overland Park died last year of about 30 stab wounds, multiple blunt injuries and a fractured skull, according to testimony Tuesday.

After hearing evidence for more than eight hours in the murder, a Johnson County District judge took just seconds to find probable cause to support murder charges against three men.

Dustin Hilt, 18, of Shawnee; Gerald “Scott” Calbeck, 19, of Merriam; and Joseph Mattox, 22, of Overland Park pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery.

So the next hearings are on April 29 and May 5. Calbeck's on May 5 is a motion to suppress and Hilt's...gave no further information. The information the police gave apparently from confessions was so horrific as to make me wonder how long this charade will continue. These three will go down, the question is who goes down for what and for how long.

My sincerest condolences to Keighley's friends and family. The whole thing leaves me.....at a loss for words.

It makes me sick to read what happened to her. I have a lot going on with my parents, so I have been MIA for a bit and haven't been keeping up with what's going on with this case, but I'm wondering why the DA hasn't upgraded the charges to capital murder?

One thing that did catch my eye is that Dustin Hilt's attorney is Paul Cramm. Paul Cramm represented Edwin Hall in the Kelsey Smith murder case. Carl Cornwell joined Cramm once the charges were upgraded to capital murder. If I am reading this correctly, Dustin Hilt is the only one of these three that has not confessed to killing Keighley.

Back when I was at the courthouse following the Edwin Hall hearings, I left confused more times than not. Not one time did Cramm or Cornwell say their client was innocent. In fact, at one press conference, they talked about Kelsey and her family. If I remember correctly, someone here (maybe Luke or Lola) uncovered the fact that Cramm and Carl Cornwell took this case to save Edwin Hall from getting the DP ... and that they have a history of doing this. I don't remember for sure, but I think Cramm worked with Cornwell at one point in time.

IMO, this might happen...

Since Hilt hasn't confessed, his charges will be upgraded to capital murder. If Carl Cornwell shows up on the scene, then I am sure this is what's going on. Cramm and Cornwell are only there to keep Hilt off death row.

All three of these guys can be charged in federal court and in Missouri. So, IMO, all three of these guys are going to be offered a plea deal of some sort. They'll take it and in exchange, they'll cut a deal so they won't be charged in the federal court system (where they will be put to death) ... and maybe this will include MO. I think that Hilt's charges may be the only one that's upgraded because of his failure to confess. Part of the plea deal for Maxttox and Calbeck will be they will have to testify against Hilt. IMO, they'll all end up with LWOP ... and Hilt will not be on death row.

Kansas hasn't put anyone to death since the mid-60's, but MO and the feds will certainly do this, and their attorney's know this.


This is only speculation on my part, but from what went on with Hall, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the same thing doesn't play out with these guys. The bottom line is all three of these guys are toast. The good thing is we now have a competent DA in office, so these guys should be worried. Steve Howe knows his stuff. It's so nice to not think about what's going on in our DA's office. I can't tell you what a zoo it was around here when Kline was in office. Howe is doing his job, and that's a relief to the citizens of this county.

I admit that I haven't really had the time to follow this case, but since Hilt is the only one that hasn't confessed, I think they're going to offer Calbeck and Mattox a lesser sentence in exchange for testifying against Hilt. Hilt will get LWOP, IMO and the others might be offered parole. Just speculation on my part ... and I could be completely wrong.

The possibility of facing Federal charges and MO charges are also on the horizon. I think they are going to wheel and deal so those charges are never filed.

Time will tell, but I think Calbeck and Mattox are going to try and save themselves from a harsh sentence, and if they have to do it by ratting out Hilt, that's what will happen, IMO.

They are all guilty, IMO, so I don't understand what Hilt thinks he has to gain by not admitting his role in her death. The other two will benefit from this decision.

I also wonder if the State will upgrade the charges against Hilt to CM. That might cause him to sing a different tune.

Notice of a hearing was filed for all 3 on Friday. No date of the hearing is given.
Hilt's lawyers are asking for reciprocal discovery, which leads me to wonder what exactly they are looking to find!
