Man Accused in Realtor’s Death Will Now Represent Himself in Court
LITTLE ROCK (KTHV) – The man accused of killing Little Rock real estate agent Beverly Carter will represent himself in court.
Arron Lewis made the formal request Wednesday morning in court to represent himself and terminate his lawyer, Jim Hensley. After discussing the decision with the judge, he was granted his request.
Lewis is considered fit to stand trial. His next appearance will be June 1.
Crystal Lowery’s next court appearance will be July 7 at 8:30 a.m. The court intends to try Lewis before Lowery.
Carter’s family is apparently asking the state to waive the death penalty for both Lewis and Lowery. The prosecution is asking for a life sentence.
