Man accused in 8 deaths gets 2nd life sentence
MORRISON – An Illinois man accused of killing eight people from two states during a 2008 spree was given a second life sentence Wednesday, this time in the death of a 93-year-old man.
A judge in Whiteside County also sentenced Nicholas T. Sheley to 30 years for home invasion and 15 years for residential burglary in the case involving Russell Reed, of Sterling. Jurors convicted Sheley in November. He already was serving life in prison for the murder of Ronald Randall, 65, of Galesburg.
Reed’s daughter-in-law, Bonnie Reed, gave an emotional statement in court, calling Sheley an “animal,” The (Sterling) Daily Gazette reported.
