An 18-year old Santee, CA, woman, Hailey Suder, is behind bars, facing a murder charge for the beating death of a homeless man.
Hailey Suder is now the third person arrested in connection with the murder of George Lowery, 50, on April 24.
Hailey Suder, of Santee, is accused of watching her boyfriend, Austin Mostrong, and his brother, Preston Mostrong, kill George Lowery in April in Santee, California, NBC San Diego reports.
Suder is suspected of being present when Lowery was killed, and helping the brothers escape, but police do not believe she took part in the attack, the news station reports. She was initially charged with first-degree murder, but the charge was dropped Monday. She has pleaded not guilty.

She was a senior at Santana High School at the time of the beating. The brothers were arrested in early May and have been held on $3 million bail since.
“This was a brutal, heinous, just cold-hearted case, and as the evidence comes out, I’d say the murder charges and the torture charges are very much warranted in this case,” Deputy District Attorney George Modlin told reporters after the Mostrongs were arraigned in May.

“My mother Penny found her husband of 25 years brutally beaten, bloody, tied up, face down and unconscious. Covered up to die. When the ambulances arrived they preformed life saving measures he was taken to the hospital in critical condition and was told there was no hope for him surviving,”
“He suffered a stroke and two brain hemorrhages over the course of 5 days that our family spent every second by his side in that hospital. My father was a generous man. Although he did not have much he was always giving. Anyone he came across loved his personality and he was always talking to people.
