Boyd man arrested for 1968 murder

A Boyd man has been convicted of a cold case murder in Pennsylvania, 45 years after the fact.

Richard Keiper, now 69 year old, was convicted Monday of first-degree murder in the death of Alfred Barnes of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The Wise County Messenger says investigators lied to Keiper, told him there was DNA evidence uncovered, and prompted a confession.

Barnes was shot in October of 1968.
