Murder charges announced UPDATE

Posted By on Tue, Aug 31, 2010 at 10:16 AM

The State Police this morning announced charges in three murders that occurred in 2009.

The news included charges related to two people — Tammy Lawrence and Ahki Hughes — found dead May 9, 2009 in an SUV near the Crystal Hill exit from I-40 in North Little Rock. David Koon wrote about progress in this case not long ago.

A charge also was announced in the slaying of Barry Glenn Murphy, 48, of Little Rock, who was found in critical condition the same day the SUV was found at Crystal Hill. He died two months later. He was found near an I-440 ramp near Springer Boulevard..

The police are withholding many details on information that led to charges and aren't saying what the connections might be, if any, between the deaths at Crystal Hill and the later death of Murphy.


Three capital murder charges have been filed against Terry Dean Birts, 26, of North Little Rock. A hindering apprehension charge was filed against Broderick Patrick and Kevin O'Donald of North Little Rock and Tavio Garrison of Jacksonville. O'Donald and Patrick are still at large. Birts is in custody in the Dallas County Jail on a federal weapons charge. Garrison is in the state prison unit at Wrightsivlle.
