Estranged wife murders husband and attempts burglary coverup: Michael Earl Reese, 40, was found shot to death at his home on the 600 block of Banks Street. The house appeared ransacked, but there was no sign of forced entry or theft. Reese's wife, Cindy Kaye Henderson Reese, and her boyfriend, Jeffery David Brown were arrested in March and charged with capital murder. Brown pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of manslaughter and accepted a 20-year sentence in exchange for his testimony against Cindy Reese.
