WARRENTON, Va. (AP) - A West Virginia prisoner is due in a Virginia courtroom for a hearing related to a slaying that had gone unsolved for more than three decades.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled Tuesday afternoon in Fauquier County General District Court for 64-year-old Ronald Cloud. He is charged with the shooting death of 30-year-old Brad Baker in Fauquier County on New Year's Eve in 1980.
Baker was the manager of Kinloch Farm, an estate owned by relatives of Stephen Currier of the famed Currier and Ives prints and banker and philanthropist Andrew Mellon.
Cloud is a prisoner in the Mount Olive Correctional Facility in West Virginia. Records show he was sentenced in Hampshire County, W.Va., in 1988 on kidnapping, conspiracy and sexual assault charges.
