Judge Sentences Massena Native To Death By Lethal Injection
A judge in Arkansas has sentenced a Massena native to death by lethal injection 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 recommended he be sentenced to death by lethal injection.
In October 2015, 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 last week on whether Reid should be sentenced to life in prison or get the death penalty. The panel recommended the death penalty.
On Monday, the judge formally sentenced Reid to death. It's unknown when the execution will take place.
