Landlord Sentenced to Life in Prison for What He Did to Two of His Tenants

via FOX 17 WXMI

Chad Allen Reed, a convicted murderer from Michigan, received two life sentences for the brutal slayings of his tenants, Joseph Soule and Jaclyn Lepird.

The judge’s decision, including life without parole, was praised by Lepird’s sister.

Reed’s actions involved shooting Soule, pursuing and brutally killing Lepird, and then challenging the court during his trial. (Trending: Democrat Found Guilty In Corruption Trial)

Trinity McAllister, Lepird’s sister, said, “We were very pleased with the decision.”

“I mean, you can’t beat two life sentences. We’re very thankful that he will never be out to hurt another person again,” she continued.

Prosecuting attorney Tamara Towns said, “He not only shot her, he chased her down; he hit her with a metal object; he tried to slit her throat. He then strangled her until a life went out of her.”

“I object, your Honor. This court does not have jurisdiction, just as I said,” said Reed.

“I call for the jury to review a record of the holding documents that they’re holding the hearing illegally, and they have,” he continued.

The trial revealed disturbing details, including the absence of signs of a break-in at Reed’s home and the discovery of the victims’ bodies in his truck.

The case highlights the risks faced by law enforcement and the senseless nature of the crime.

An investigator testified that, “In the bed of the truck, there were two plastic garbage cans — large ones like you take to the curb. We emptied those.”

“As we kept going, we started seeing lumpy, or hump areas, covered by black plastic,” they continued.

“Then we got to an area where we saw what appeared to be human remains encased in plastic,” said the investigator.

The prosecutor said during the trial, “All the facts, taken as a whole, paint a very clear picture — the defendant, Chad Reed, brutally murdered Jaclyn Lepird and Joseph Soule. He planned it. He intended it.”
