Victim’s son testifies on 1st day of Sheley trial
MORRISON – The son of a 93-year-old northern Illinois man prosecutors say was slain by alleged spree killer Nicholas Sheley told jurors Monday at Sheley’s trial that he found bloodlike stains on Russell Reed’s porch steps, kitchen door and kitchen floor.
Sheley is accused in the 2008 killings of eight people in Illinois and Missouri. He already has been convicted in the murder of a Galesburg man and faces trials in six other deaths. Prosecutors allege Sheley killed Reed in his home and stole his wallet and car on June 23, 2008. His body was found in the trunk of his car three days later.
Sheley has pleaded not guilty and faces life in prison if convicted.
