Reed convicted in deaths of Oneida couple

Vance Reed (Outagamie Co. Jail)

APPLETON (WLUK) - Vance Reed was convicted Thursday for the murder of an Oneida couple.

Reed entered no contest pleas to two counts of first-degree intentional homicide for the September deaths of Harry and Lorraine Brown Bear, according to court records.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 10. Each charge carries a mandatory life prison term, although the judge can decide to set parole eligibility dates.

The plea avoids a trial, which had been scheduled for May 18.

Reed killed the couple during an argument at their Oneida home.
