PERRY COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

The court case in the shooting death of 15-year-old Sidnee Stephens took another surprise turn on Thursday. Dakota Wall, Stephens' half sister, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge and walked out of the court house a free woman.   

Wall pleaded to a lesser charge of obstruction a peace officer. A charge that the state filed Thursday. Wall had faced three counts of obstructing justice in connection with the 2010 shooting death of Stephens.

As part of the plea deal with the state, Wall must pay $404. She was also sentenced to 22 days in the Perry County Jail along with 261 days of home confinement. But was given credit for her time already served.

Wall is two of four defendants to accept a plea deal with the state.

Carl Dane pleaded guilty to murder and sentence to 60 years in prison. But Dane was found dead in his cell the day he was set to start his prison sentence.

The two other defendants still with court cases are Robbie Mueller and James Glazier. Both are charged with murder, kidnapping and home invasion.

On Thursday, Robbie Mueller also walked into a Perry County courtroom. Inside he waived his right to a jury trial. Instead, a judge will decide his fate. Mueller's bench trial is set for December.

Glazier is expected to appear in court Friday morning for a pre-trial hearing.
