Ill. man accused in killing spree won't testify
MORRISON – An Illinois man accused in a two-state killing spree that left eight people dead told a judge Monday that he won't testify at his trial in the slaying of a 93-year-old man.
Closing arguments were scheduled for Tuesday in Nicholas Sheley's trial in the death of Russell Reed. Sheley's defense attorneys chose not to call any witnesses.
Sheley, 33, is accused of killing eight people in Illinois and Missouri in 2008. He has pleaded not guilty in Whiteside County in Reed's death. Sheley already has been sentenced to life in prison after he was convicted of bludgeoning a 65-year-old Galesburg man to death. He faces trials in six other deaths and another life sentence if he is convicted in Reed's death.
