    He must have needed a lot of time and privacy to do the things he did... I guess thats why we hear many killers are "loners" that keep to themselves...

    However this child ultimately died I hope it was swift, the things he did afterwards to her remans are just too bizarre.

    UT - Cody Lynn Nielsen Court to hear arguments in appeal of 2004 Cache murder convict

    I couldn't find anything about this case on the board and I thought it was interesting considering that he plead guilty then withdrew his plea.

    Court to hear arguments in appeal of 2004 Cache murder conviction

    On appeal, Nielsen argues that his convictions should be reversed because although the trial court originally granted his motion to move his trial to Davis County, his trial was heard by Box Elder County jurors in Cache County. Among other things, Nielsen also claims there was not enough evidence to support his aggravated kidnapping conviction.

    Nielsen, 31, is charged with capital murder, first-degree felony aggravated kidnapping, second-degree felony kidnapping and two third-degree felony counts of desecration of a human body.

    "He sat up on that hill and piece by piece took her body apart, ripped her flesh from her bones," Wyatt said.


    Nielsen pleaded guilty in January 2003 to capital murder as part of a deal to spare his life. He later withdrew his plea, however, and asked for a trial.

    Killer of teen girl pleads with jury in Cache case

    LOGAN — Jurors spared Cody Lynn Nielsen's life Wednesday, just hours after they heard from the convicted murderer for the first time.

    The six-man, six-woman jury deliberated just 2 1/2 hours before returning their verdict of life in prison without parole. Jurors could have sentenced Nielsen to death or life in prison with the possibility of parole for the June 2000 murder of 15-year-old Trisha Ann Autry.

    Utah Supreme Court considers overturning child killer’s conviction

    The foolish and the dead alone never change their opinions.
    James Russell Lowell

    I'm not so foolish as to think truth and justice must inevitably triumph simply because they deserve to, but liars ultimately destroy the things they lie to protect, and corruption, ambition, and betrayal inevitably betray themselves, as well.

    The Utah Supreme Court filed a ruling in which Cody Lynn Nielsen’s 2003 aggravated murder conviction has been affirmed. However, his kidnapping conviction was overturned...

    “We don’t anticipate it having any impact on the length of time he will spend in prison, which will be the rest of his life,” said Assistant Attorney General Karen Klucznik.
