Toledo man walks into TPD headquarters, confesses to 2008 murder

Ronald Martin, 60

A Toledo man has been indicted on charges he murdered a woman in 2008.

Investigators say 60-year-old Ronald Martin walked into police headquarters on November 23 and confessed to murdering 40-year-old Lynette Reid


Her badly burned body was found September 17, 2008 inside an abandoned home in Central Toledo.

At first, the coroner ruled Reid died of a drug overdose but will change that after these new developments.

Police say Martin's confession included facts that would have only been known to Reid's killer.

Martin is now being held in the Lucas County Jail.
