Guilty plea in NLR drug murder

Posted By on Fri, Dec 7, 2012 at 10:27 AM

The Office of the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas announced a guilty plea in a May 2011 murder case in which the victim was shot 14 times in a car during a drug deal.

Durrell Hill, 21, of Little Rock, plead guilty to aiding and abetting in the possession of a firearm in furtherance of a federal drug trafficking crime. The plea agreement carries a sentence of 15 years in prison. Prosecutors say Hill shot the victim after the victim pulled a gun during a marijuana deal and pointed it at the head of Hill's partner, Labrons Ellington, 21, of North Little Rock. Ellington had plead guilty in September to the same count of possession of a firearm during a drug crime.

    Sims Bar-B-Q — Why had I gone so many years without a visit? How could I forget that spare ribs are richer than back ribs and infinitely better when they have a good bark-like finish and Sims' nonpareil mustard-based sauce, augmented by a healthy squirt of the incendiary house hot sauce (you have to ask). The slaw is fresh. The potato salad, too. And don't forget greens unless you are a vegetarian. Yes, I said unless you are a vegetarian. The pigmeat quotient is high. Don't forget the 40's. Budweiser. None of that craft crapola here. Dinner and plenty of beer for six ran $75. Recommended. — Max Brantley
