Massena Native Sentenced To Death By Lethal Injection
A jury in Arkansas has decided a Massena native should be put to death for killing two family members, including a woman who once lived in Ogdensburg.
A jury in Garland County, Arkansas convicted 57 year old Eric Allen Reid on two counts of capital murder.
That same jury is now recommending he be sentenced to death by lethal injection.
In October 2015, Eric Allen Reid killed his 32 year old daughter, Maryann Reid. Maryann was originally from Ogdensburg, but was living in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.
Eric Allen Reid also killed 57 year old Laura Reid, who was Maryann's stepmother.
According to officials at the Garland County Circuit Court, the jury deliberated Tuesday on whether Reid should be sentenced to life in prison or get the death penalty. The panel recommended the death penalty.
A judge will formally sentence Reid on Monday, officials said.
