FROM STAFF REPORTS
in cold case
A Quinton man who confessed to the decades-old unsolved murder of a Haskell County commissioner pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of second-degree murder and was sentenced to 45 years, a prosecutor said Monday. Clifford Eagle, 57, entered the guilty plea in Haskell County District Court on July 29, said Farley Ward, district attorney. Eagle was charged in 2012 after he told investigators in Billings, Mont., he shot and killed Leo Reasnor on June 25, 1987. Reasoner’s body was found slumped in his pickup near an oil lease road in a pasture at Lequire, where he grazed cattle.
