LAKE CITY, Ark. (AP) - Authorities in northeastern Arkansas have arrested a teenager in the death of a 73-year-old man.
Craighead County Sheriff Marty Boyd says the 17-year-old boy was arrested early Sunday in the death of Jimmy Hall of Lake City. Boyd says the teenager will either be charged with first-degree murder or capital murder in the death.
The suspect’s name wasn’t released because he is a minor and hasn’t been formally charged.
Boyd says authorities are awaiting autopsy results but investigators believe Hall was stabbed to death.
