Police Arrest Woman for Questioning in Kentucky Murder
Kentucky detectives are en route to Fort Smith, after officers there Tuesday arrested a woman wanted in connection with a murder in Marion City, Ky.
Cindy Hutchinson, 50, was arrested when Fort Smith Police received complaints that she was trying to buy pills at a residence at 3816 North 43rd Street, according to Sgt. Daniel Grubbs with the Fort Smith Police Department.
“Some lady was going through like in a car knocking on different trailers but no one would open up or anything – it was like she was looking for someone. The next thing I know, as I’m walking my dog – she was over here with some cops,” said Dennis Harper, who lives at the Northridge Trailer Park where Hutchinson was looking for drugs.
Police say when they arrived, Hutchinson was sitting in a 2001 blue Chevy Cavalier. The license plates were registered to Leonard Roberts. According to a news report from WPDS 6, a NBC affiliate in Kentucky, Roberts was found murdered in his home Monday night in Marion City. However, WPDS reported that Hutchinson is not a suspect.
Fort Smith Police booked Hutchinson into the Sebastian County jail on felony warrants including one charging theft by receiving.
Hutchinson’s clothing, personal items and the blue Chevy Cavalier were seized for DNA analysis at the request of Kentucky officials.
According to WPDS, Hutchinson will appear in court Monday, July 23. Bond had not been set.
