Nebraska man charged in a 1982 cold case homicide in Utah
SALT LAKE CITY (AP)– A Nebraska man has been formally charged in a Utah cold case homicide from 1982.
The Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office says 55-year-old Bryan Reed of Sioux City was charged Friday in 3rd District Court with criminal homicide, second-degree murder, and aggravated burglary.
Reed is being held on $1 million bond in Nebraska’s Dakota County Jail as he awaits extradition to Utah.
The Deseret News reports Reed was 17 years old in August 1982 when he allegedly entered 72-year-old Wilhelmina Reid’s home in Salt Lake City through a bathroom window.
Prosecutors say Reed allegedly struck the woman multiple times with a baseball bat for an unknown reason.
Reed lived with his stepmother at the time, across the street from the elderly woman’s house.
