Jason Sweeney was a sixteen year old from Fishtown, Pennsylvania who would be brutally murdered by the girl he was dating, a friend since childhood and two brothers. Jason Sweeney had recently started dating Justina Morley a troubled fifteen year old girl. Jason who had been working construction was excited for the date he had that night with Justina Morley.

Justina Morley would invite him to meet her at a wooded area so the two of them could have sex. What Jason Sweeney did not know was that his friend Edward Batzig Jr and two brothers, Nicholas and Domenic Coia were lying in wait so they could rob him of his paycheck

Edward Batzig Jr would strike Jason Sweeney first which was quickly followed by Nicholas and Domenic Coia who would also attack. Jason Sweeney reportedly begged Edward Batzig Jr to stop however his so called friend would hit him repeatedly with an axe. The three teen killers would finish by smashing Jason Sweeney skull in with a large rock.

Justina Morley, Edward Batzig Jr, Nicholas and Domenic Coia would steal the money out of Jason’s pocket and reportedly the four shared a group hug

The four would spend the money on jewelry and drugs. It would not take long for police to figure out who was responsible for the murder of Jason Sweeney

Justina Morley lawyers would attempt to keep her case in juvenile court as they brought up her struggles with mental health and drug addiction however the prosecutors just pointed at the severity of the crimes that she was charged with. Justina Morley would be tried as an adult and would agree to testify against the three others in exchange for a reduced sentence.

Edward Batzig Jr, Nicholas Coia and Domenic Coia would all be found guilty and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Many believed that Justina Morley was the ringleader and that prosecutors did not need her testimony in order to convict the other three and she deserved a life sentence for her actions.

Justina Morley would be released from prison in 2020.
