FAIRFILED, Iowa (KWWL) -- The two teens that have been charged with the murder of a Fairfield High School Spanish teacher are scheduled to have bond review hearings later this month.

Both Willard Miller and Jeremy Goodale were scheduled to make their initial court appearance on Friday for the death of Nohema Graber, but one preliminary hearing has been waived and the other is not expected to take place.

Miller and Goodale, both 16-years-old, have been charged as adults with First-Degree Murder and First-Degree Conspiracy to Commit Homicide after Graber's body was found in a Fairfield park on November 3. Both teens are being held on $1 million bond.

Miller and Goodale have now filed motions for bond review, and their hearings will be on November 23. Miller's Bond Review is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and Goodale's is scheduled for 3 p.m.

Lawyers for Miller had previously requested for his bond to be lowered and for his release under supervision, but prosecutors filed resistance against the request. 

A vigil was held for Graber at Fairfield High School on Tuesday.
