Conviction of Logan Clegg for the 2022 Murders of Stephen and Djeswende Reid in Concord, New Hampshire
Concord, NH – Attorney General John M. Formella and Concord Police Chief Bradley C. Osgood announce that today Logan Clegg was convicted by a Merrimack County Superior Court jury of four counts of second-degree murder, one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, and four counts of falsifying physical evidence. Mr. Clegg was found guilty of both knowingly and recklessly causing the deaths of Stephen and Djeswende Reid on April 18, 2022, while the retired couple was out for a walk on a trail near their residence in Concord, New Hampshire, under circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to the value of human life by shooting them with a gun. The verdict was returned by the jury this afternoon after approximately three weeks of trial.
“Today our thoughts are with Stephen and Djeswende Reid, their family, and all those who knew and loved them,” said Attorney General Formella. “I extend my sincere thanks to the trial team and our law enforcement partners, especially the Concord Police Department, for their excellent work on this case. Going forward we at the Department of Justice will continue our work to protect the public and seek justice.”
Mr. Clegg will be sentenced at 9:00 a.m. on December 15, 2023, at the Merrimack County Superior Court in Concord. The defendant is held without bail pending sentencing.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Joshua Speicher, Senior Assistant Attorney General Meghan Hagaman, and Assistant Attorney General Ryan Olberding with assistance from our law enforcement partners including the Concord Police Department, the New Hampshire Department of Justice, the New Hampshire State Police, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
