PINCKNEYVILLE, IL (KFVS) - The sister of a teen murdered in July has been arrested in connection with the murder.

Dakota L. Wall, 18, is charged with obstructing justice in the death of 15-year-old Sidnee Stephens of Pinckneyville.

Wall was listed as a sister of Stephens in Stephens' obituary from Pyatt Funeral Home.

Police are not saying what led them to Dakota Wall, but court documents allege Wall lied to officers about Stephens's death.  

Back in July, Perry County Sheriff Keith Kellerman read the charges against three teens accused of killing Stevens. Wall sat next to her mother during the press conference, as they learned details about her sister's death.

Court document allege that same day Wall told police she didn't know about the circumstances surrounding Stephens' death. 

Along with the charge, the court ordered Wall has no contact with any member of the gang known as the "P-Town Saints."

Pinckneyville Police Chief John Griffin says the group formed about a year ago and involved a handful of high school kids.

"Three of them are in jail right now that are associated with the gang," Griffin said.  

Carl Dane, James Glazier and Robbie Mueller all face murder charges in connection with Stephens's death. They are behind bars in the Perry County Jail.  

"We felt certain that we've address it properly and we pretty well took care of what they considered the P-Town Saints," Griffin said.

Perry County State's Attorney David Stanton says Wall was arrested Saturday and jailed in Randolph County.

Stanton says that's because her stepmother Sherry Wall was already in the Perry County Jail on meth charges.

Wall is now behind bars in the Perry County Jail. Bond is set at $50,000. 

Stanton says the investigation continues into Stephens' death.
