Reyes pleads guilty to murder charges

Klamath Falls, Ore. – Matthew Dean Reyes pleaded ‘guilty’ Tuesday afternoon to murdering a Klamath Falls cab driver.

The charges stem from the January 2015 murder of Rickie Aston at a downtown Klamath Falls motel.

Police say Aston was beaten to death, then had his throat cut.

Reyes was captured three weeks later in Washington state, following a home invasion robbery.

Reyes stated during the plea hearing that he was under the influence of meth at the time of the murder.

Sentencing has been scheduled for September 7th.
