Eyewitness News crews say the courtroom was filled with people wearing purple in support of Matulevich and her family.

The 911 call from the night of August 27 was played to an emotional crowd when police were called to Sand Hollow Drive after Matulevich was found by her mother with a gunshot wound to the head.

Matulevich was a cheerleader at Hazleton Area High School and was about to start her senior year.

Testimony was heard Thursday morning from the victim’s mother, friend, Pennsylvania State Police, and the Luzerne County DA’s office.

In August police were informed that Alan Jay Meyers, 17, of Black Creek Township, was brought inside of the home by the victim around 3:00 a.m. or 4:00 a.m.
