AVOCA, Iowa (AP) — A man convicted twice for killing a woman at his western Iowa home has been given 50 years in prison.
The Daily Nonpareil reports that 67-year-old Robert Reynolds was sentenced Wednesday in Avoca.
Reynolds was first convicted in November 2014 of first-degree murder for the April 2014 of killing 64-year-old Patricia Kinkade-Dorsey after a night of drinking at his and his wife’s Oakland home. Kinkade-Dorsey was a friend of his wife.
The Iowa Appeals Court later ordered a new trial, ruling that the trial judge erroneously changed the first trial’s location.
