Man gets 60 years for teen’s murder

A man convicted of killing a 13-year-old girl in Indianapolis in 1986 will likely spend the rest of his life in prison. Paul Reese Sr., 69, was sentenced Wednesday to 60 years for the death of Dawn Stuard.

Reese was already serving a 20-year sentence in an unrelated murder case.
