Burglar sentenced in 1981 northwest Ohio slaying

WAPAKONETA, Ohio – A judge has sentenced a Florida man to seven-to-25 years in prison in the fatal stabbing of a farmer during a burglary in northwest Ohio in 1981.

Fifty-three-year-old Paul Hoover was living in Altamonte Springs near Orlando when he was arrested in December in the slaying of Marcellus Reineke in an apartment in St. Marys, east of Grand Lake St. Marys. Authorities had suspected Hoover and questioned him about the murder before.

The Lima News (http://bit.ly/1kNMxpY) reports that Hoover pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter last month. He was sentenced Wednesday in Wapakoneta.

Another man, 51-year-old Tracy Mabry of Celina, has been charged with aggravated murder in the case. He has pleaded not guilty.
