Jeremy Everett Goodale and Willard Noble Chaiden Miller Killed 66-year-old Nohema Graber (Center) over bad grades.

Two Iowa teenagers allegedly killed their teacher after disputing a bad grade, according to court documents filed Tuesday.

Willard Miller and Jeremy Goodale, both 17, have been charged with the murder of Fairfield High School Spanish teacher Nohema Graber, according to court documents filed by Jefferson County Attorney Chauncey Moulding and Assistant Iowa Attorney General Scott Brown.

Miller had allegedly met with Graber regarding a poor grade just hours before she was killed.

“The poor grade is believed to be the motive behind the murder of Graber which directly connects Miller,” the court documents stated.

In Nov. 2021, Graber drove to a park where she normally took walks and two males were seen leaving the park driving her van, the documents stated.

The teacher was beaten to death with a baseball bat and her body was found under a tarp in a wheelbarrow in Fairfield park.

Goodale allegedly bragged to a friend on Snapchat that he and Miller, who were both 16 years old at the time, had killed Graber, the documents stated.

The documents revealing the students’ motives were filed ahead of a Wednesday hearing over whether evidence from Miller’s home and information from Snapchat should be suppressed in the case.

Miller first denied playing any role in Graber’s death, stating that “he had knowledge of everything but did not participate,” blaming the murder on a “roving group of masked kids,” the documents stated. Miller said the kids who killed Graber made him drive and help hide Graber’s body.
