  • Update: Jury Convicts Robert A. Reynolds of First Degree Murder

    (Council Bluffs) A jury Friday afternoon found Robert A. Reynolds, of Oakland, Iowa, guilty of First-Degree murder in the April 8, shooting death of 64-year-old Patricia Kinkade-Dorsey of rural Atlantic.


    The jury consisting of three men and nine women began deliberations at around 11:30 a.m. and returned to the courtroom with a verdict at around 2:45 p.m.  Robert Reynolds was escorted out of the courtroom by two Pottawattamie County Sheriffs deputies shortly after the verdict was read by Fourth District Court Judge Greg Steensland.


    Defense Attorney's Nelson and Reedy say they will file a motion for arrested judgment. The grounds of their motion are expected to be; the trial not being held in Avoca, the jail house telephone call and possibly one or two issues discussed in chambers. If the judge denies the motion at sentencing, they intend to file a formal appeal.


    Pottawattamie County Attorney Matt Wilber says he was obviously happy with the verdict, but also feels bad for the Reynolds family, and has compassion for the jurors who had to make that decision.


    “I don’t really celebrate after someone is going to prison for life, win or lose,” stated Wilber. “I could even see some tears in the eyes of the jurors as they were filing out and I know that they are going to struggle with this. But I know they made the right decision. I thought we had a very strong case, but it was a tough decision for them.”


    It was also a tough three days for a group of friends of both parties who sat through the entire trial. Rob Stamp, of Atlantic was one of them.


    “I have known both families for quite some time, Pat more than the Reynolds family, who I have known for roughly four years,” stated Stamp. “It’s quite a shock. But I believe justice was served. Nobody wins, everybody loses.”


    Robert Reynolds is scheduled for sentencing on January 14, at 1:30 p.m.
