Question of the Day
40-foot stocking made for needy kids
CONWAY — Once it is stuffed, a Christmas stocking being stitched by students at the University of Central Arkansas would pull down a chimney if anyone tried to hang it from a fireplace mantle.
The students are working on a 40-foot stocking to hold 10,000 toys and 5,000 articles of clothing that they will distribute to Arkansas children. They also hope to get their creation in the Guinness World Records.
Suspect arrested as he leaves hospital
NEVADA CITY — A man accused of killing his estranged wife with a nail gun last month was arrested after spending five weeks in a hospital for nail-gun wounds to his chest and abdomen.
Nevada County Sheriff’s Department deputies were waiting to arrest Richard Williams, 51, a landscaper from Grass Valley, when he was released Friday.
Mr. Williams had been hospitalized since Oct. 22, when authorities found him injured and his wife, teacher Hetty Williams, 48, dead from two nail-gun wounds to the head.
At the time, Nevada County Sheriff’s Lt. Ron Smith said authorities found a suicide note in the home indicating that Mr. Williams’ estranged wife was seeing someone else. The note said the author, thought to be Mr. Williams, wanted their bodies cremated and the ashes spread together, Lt. Smith said.
If he had been arrested immediately after the Oct. 22 incident, the county would have been at least partly responsible for costs associated with his health care, officials said.
