Federal prosecutors in Anchorage say Schilmiller, who is a person of interest in Hoffman’s murder, will be extradited to Alaska to face charges.
Hoffman’s family said the victim had the mental age of a seventh grader and that she met Brehmer when they were both students at Service High School.
‘All I know is that my daughter didn’t deserve all this,’ her father Timothy Hoffman said when he went to court to see the teenager’s arraigned.
He said Cynthia had described Brehmer as her ‘best friend’.
He said a developmental disability that caused his daughter to operate intellectually at about a seventh-grade level had made her vulnerable.
‘She should have had the friends that she wanted. She shouldn’t have had people that wanted to plot against her. And the ages of these people? I think it is sick. And now they don’t have to live the nightmare that I have to live,’ he said at the time.
