Nicholas Coia wore a blue prison uniform, handcuffs and a blank expression yesterday as he was led into court for a resentencing hearing in the brutal 2003 murder of 16-year-old Jason Sweeney.

Coia, 28, sat next to his lawyer, his back to the victim’s parents Dawn and Paul Sweeney and his sister Melissa Vereb, who were among the witnesses called to testify at the hearing to determine whether Coia’s life sentence should stand.

“My precious baby boy had been beaten to death so brutally that I had to identify him by a fresh scar on his hand,” Dawn Sweeney testified, tears streaming down her face. “I sat in the court room listening to testimony that a couple of weeks prior to Jason’s murder, the four of them originally wanted to murder me and my whole family while we slept.”

She asked that Coia’s life sentence be upheld.

Coia, 16 at the time of the killing, was convicted of first-degree murder in March 2005, along with his brother Domenic Coia and their friend Edward Batzig, for the brutal slaying of Sweeney in Fishtown. A fourth teen, Justina Morley, then 15, pleaded guilty in the slaying and was sentenced to 17 1/2 to 35 years in prison.

The three boys, all under 18 at the time of the murder, were sentenced to life in prison without parole. However, in 2012 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that life sentences given to juveniles were a violation of the 8th amendment, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment, and required that juveniles sentenced to life be resentenced.

The resentencings must take into consideration the juvenile’s age at the time of the murder as well as other factors.

During yesterday’s hearing, Special Agent Richard Reinhold, who investigated the murder in 2003, described the vicious wounds found on Sweeney’s face and testified that Coia spent weeks plotting to kill Sweeney with the intent to steal his money.

Assistant District Attorney Jude Conroy, asked Reinhold to explain how Coia enlisted the help of Morley to lure Sweeney to the location where Coia, his brother and Batzig hacked and clubbed him to death with multiple weapons including a rock and a hatchet.

Vereb, the victim’s sister, asked that Coia’s sentence stand, saying he was incapable of change.

“Forgiving them means that it hurts less today than it did 12 years ago,” she testified. “I only ask that you find it in your judgment to understand that while some people are capable of becoming better than their past, that Coia is not. This was a well thought out murder. One where he had plenty of time to stop it from happening.”

The hearing before Common Pleas Judge Sandy L.V. Byrd continues today.

    The mastermind gets a max of 35 years while the other boys she manipulated get life without parole. Fuck that shit. Just because she didn’t wild a weapon she sicked those psychos on him.

    She’s a complete psychopath with no remorse. Her jail house letters are pure, undiluted crazy psycho and she gets the lightest sentence cause she’s a woman.

      I agree that she is the instigator and mastermind. Any person that does this is sick and sadistic. Just watched Killer Kids. The reason why she got the crap sentence is because they needed her testimony to convict the one’s that actually obliterated that poor kid. They said that one of the boys looked like a baby-faced 12 year old and they thought the jury might sympathize and let them off. Due to the brutality committed at such a young age they felt that there was no change for them. Basically the only reason she got the b.s. sentence is because they had to make a deal with somebody to get a conviction and since she didn’t actually commit the murder, she got it. Hopefully, she’ll at least serve a good 25 years.

    The police made a b******* deal with that f****** little b****. They didn’t need her they had the interviews that every one of them admitted to killing that boy and they all were proud of it so why did they need her the cops really screwed that up she should have gotten life-without-parole like the rest of them and you would think they would be murdered in prison after what they did

      Can not really blame the cops on this one. Blame the district attorney or whoever prosecuted the case for she quickly confessed in order to save herself from a life sentence and agreed to testify against the other three. Instead of looking at the whole case the prosecutors gave her a sweetheart deal when in all actuality it was a slam dunk case and her help was never needed. In my opinion she deserved the life in prison without parole sentence

    Were they all prosecuted at once as codefendant’s or did they have the trials seperate? If it was one trial who was the DA? This girl should never have gotten a 17 1/2 to 35 deal and I hate PA sentencing guidelines. They should have 17 to 45 but they do half sentences in PA instead of like other states or federal where you do 3/4 of the sentence before you’re eligible for parole. For crimes.like this it’s not right. For non violent crimes it’s different but the guys got 172 years each! They most likely won’t get let out even under SCOTUS 2012 ruling on miller v alabama
