Shelia Eddy responded to Dave and Mary Neese's lawsuit this week.

Eddy's first defense states that the suit fails to state a claim and the Neeses do not have any private right of action under West Virginia Law arising from the death of their daughter.

Eddy's second defense said the claim is barred under the statute of limitation.

The third defense stated the the intentional acts of another person caused the death of Skylar Neese and her death was not caused by Eddy's acts.

The fourth and fifth defenses of the response deal with Eddy denying that her mother, Tara Clendenen, and Rachel Shoaf's mother were negligent.

The first count is for murder, sorrow and mental anguish, the loss of reasonably expected income, as well as funeral and burial expenses.  The second and third counts are for negligence, reckless concealment and negligent supervision entrustment.

The initial court filing, filed by Dave and Mary Neese, said Clendenen and Patricia Shoaf gave their minor daughters the opportunity to be out in the early hours of the morning on the night Skylar Neese was killed.

The Neeses demand a trial by jury and financial compensation for their loss, according to their court filing.
