Candidate's wife dies

Posted By on Fri, May 2, 2008 at 9:41 AM

Terrible news: Hugh Finkelstein's wife, Kim, 36, died last night . A friend said she was at home and apparently suffered a catastrophic health event, such as a seizure or heart attack, and fell.

Finkelstein, a deputy prosecutor, is a candidate for Little Rock district court judge, the criminal division seat being vacated by retiring Judge Lee Munson. He's in a three-way race with Alice Lightle and Ernest Sanders. His campaign issued a brief statement saying "all campaign activity will be put on hold until further notice." Lightle's campaign said she would not attend forums and events to which the candidates had been invited out of respect for the family.
