Evansville woman pleads guilty to murder & drug offenses



The woman charged in the deadly shooting of her boyfriend last October in Evansville, has pleaded guilty to murder.

Vanderburgh County Circuit Court Judge David Kiely accepted Chauna Reed’s plea early Tuesday morning, following a lengthy investigation by the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office and Evansville Police Department.

26-year-old Chauna Reed shot and killed 27-year-old Stedman Baird in the 1800 block of Plantation Court, then investigators discovered she deliberately tried to hide evidence.

Baird was shot once in the head, according to the Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office.

In October, Judge David Kiely will sentence Reed to 45 years at the Indiana Department of Corrections.
