From The (Centralia) Chronicle

Ron Reynolds on Thursday will publicly break his 13 years of silence on the 1998 death of his wife Ronda Reynolds at a news conference at his defense attorney’s office in Olympia.

At 11 a.m., he will appear with his wife Linda and four of his five sons — including Jonathan, who, with his father, was named as a suspect in Ronda Reynolds’ death by an inquest jury on Oct. 19. The two men turned themselves in, then were quickly released when the prosecuting attorney decided against filing charges.

Ron Reynolds will dispute inquest-witness testimony — which included hearsay and conjecture — that came forth in Lewis County Coroner Warren McLeod’s seven-day inquest into Reynolds’ death in mid-October, attorney

 

said.

Jonathan Reynolds is not expected to speak because of his vulnerability as a suspect, Cordes said.

After a day of deliberations, a five-person inquest jury unanimously ruled on Oct. 19 that former state Trooper Ronda Reynolds was murdered in her Toledo home on Dec. 16, 1998, and that Ron and Jonathan Reynolds were responsible.
