Richard R. Cloud, 64, got sentenced to life without parole for a 1988 kidnapping and rape in West Virginia.
Brad Baker fired Mr. Cloud's stepfather from the Kinloch Farm staff the day of the murder, according to court documents.
Mr. Baker's sister Blythe Patenaube: “His murder was a tremendous loss for our family. But, today, his brother Bruce and I celebrate.”
Mr. Cloud said he entered this house — since demolished — on Kinloch Farm and shot Brad Baker twice with a 20-guage shotgun.
Athough investigators identified the defendant as a suspect in 1995, the case blew open in December, Commonwealth's Attorney Jim Fisher said at Tuesday's press conference.
Nothing is going to bring Brad back. It’s a terrible emptiness for us. But, the peace comes from the affirmation and the support of our justice system.
— Blythe Patenaube, victim's sister
