Omaha, NE - Even though it's been one year since 16 year old Melanie Koontz's body was found in Cole Creek, her family tells Action 3 News they still don't have their baby girl and it is still just as painful to talk about.
In court Tuesday morning Koontz's killer, 17 year old Justin Lenz pleaded guilty to 2nd degree murder.
Melanie's parents Andrew and Michelle Koontz were in court to watch Lenz make his plea. Michelle Koontz tells Action 3 News the hardest part about Tuesday, was seeing Lenz with a stone cold face no emotions.
