Plea Deal Expected This Week in Death of St. Peter Native

Wheat Ridge, CO -

The woman accused of killing a St. Peter native in Colorado may accept a plea deal.

On Wednesday, prosecutors are expected to hand down a plea deal of second–degree murder against Melissa Miller for the murder of Leanne "Annie" Meyer.

The 51–year–old Meyer vanished without a trace back in March.

After months of searching, her remains were discovered on July 4th. On July 15th,

Annie's roommate and the only suspect in Annie's disappearance was arrested.

Annie's brother Mark says as part of a plea bargain, Miller will plead guilty to a lesser charge of 2nd degree murder.

"Before we found my sister I talked to her personally for 2 straight hours," Meyer recalls. "She just lied, no regret no remorse either.

After 10 months of searching and wondering, the Meyer family hopes tomorrow will bring some closure.

"We will never know the truth on how my sister died, says Mark, "I don't think the truth will ever come out so taking the plea bargain we don't have to deal with that we don't have to worry about it."

Mark Meyer will join the entire family in court, where he plans to address the court during sentencing.
