Man pleads guilty to 1998 murder of security officer
Madison County Circuit Judge William Chapman sentenced Marcus Reed to 20 years with 10 to serve and 10 suspended.
Canton Police Department reopened the cold case last year. Reed, who was 18 at the time of the shooting, had confessed to someone other than the police but the information did not get to authorities then.
Reid was a security guard at Canton Gardens Apartments when, in response to a disturbance, he sprayed Reed with mace. Reed then came back and shot the guard three times with a 9-millimeter gun.
