  • The trout must go: The state is planning to pull all of the brook trout out of a Plumas County lake in order to protect the yellow-legged frog.

Wallin-Reed sentenced to 84 years for McGuire murder

Dan McDonald
Managing Editor


Gregory Chad Wallin-Reed’s voice cracked as he turned in his courtroom seat and addressed the family of the man he killed more than two years ago.

“I know that there are no words that I can offer that will give you relief from the pain that you experience every moment of every day,” he said.

Moments later, Plumas County Superior Court Judge Ira Kaufman sentenced Wallin-Reed to 84 years in prison for the July 2011 shooting that killed 20-year-old Rory McGuire, of Susanville, and wounded two of McGuire’s friends.

See Wednesday editions of Feather Publishing newspapers for details of the sentencing.
