Michelle Sullins Reynolds has pleaded guilty to reduced charges in connection with the July 2004 death of her husband. Reynolds entered the pleas Wednesday morning to charges of voluntary manslaughter and party to the crime of burglary and was sentenced to 10-years on each count to be served consecutively. She will get credit for time served, which is around 5-years. Reynolds’ murder trial was scheduled to start in two weeks.
Co-defendant Scotty Harper, and alleged stabber, was sentenced to life without parole, plus 25-years Wednesday afternoon. Harper pleaded guilty in October of 2008 to murder charges. Authorities believe the two were having an affair and plotted to kill Thad Reynolds, who was stabbed multiple times outside of the Frito Lay distribution Center on Calhoun Road on July the 5th of 2004.
