Jury convicts man in 1993 cold case murder

Posted: Updated:

A 44-year-old man has been convicted in the cold case slaying of a western Michigan business owner.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports that a jury on Wednesday found Grady Shields, Jr. guilty of first-degree premeditated murder. He will be sentenced June 9 to mandatory life in prison without parole.

Lois Cox, a 59-year-old industrial sales business owner in Kalamazoo, disappeared on Oct. 20, 1993. Her body was found six days later inside her vehicle about 20 miles south in Three Rivers.

At the time of his arrest in Cox's slaying, Shields was serving 15 to 25 years in prison for an armed robbery he committed two weeks after Cox's body was found.
