WARRENTON, Va. (AP) - Virginia authorities have made an arrest in a Fauquier County slaying that went unsolved for more than three decades.
Court records show that 64-year-old Ronald Cloud was charged on Tuesday with murder in the New Year's Eve 1980 shooting of Brad Baker.
The 30-year-old Baker was found with shots to his head and groin, with the front door window panes smashed out of the two-story farmhouse where he lived.
He was the manager of Kinloch Farm, an estate owned by relatives of Stephen Currier of the famed Currier and Ives prints.
WJLA-TV reports that Cloud is the stepson of a man who was fired from the estate the same day Baker was slain.
West Virginia records list Cloud as a prison inmate convicted of sexual assault.
