Gruesome story from Dermott, where a father is charged with running over and killing his two daughters, according to Channel 4. The children's mother also was injured and the accused killer was reportedly shot by his father-in-law.

The initial State Police report:

Chicot County Sheriffs Deputies, Dermott Police and Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division are investigating an incident reported yesterday (Sunday, April 17th 2011) that resulted in the death of two children and the injury of their mother.

Robert Carter, Jr., 23, of Lake Village, has been taken into custody pending the filing of formal charges.

Carter is accused of driving a vehicle into the yard of a Dermott residence located at 321 West Iowa Street where Latasha Figures, 24, Carter's former girlfriend and the couple's two children resided.

As Carter drove into the yard he struck and killed Amoni Elasia Carter, 18 months old and critically injured Nekole Carter, age 4, who later died at a Little Rock hospital. Figures was also injured and remains hospitalized.

As Carter exited the vehicle a Figures family member shot Carter in the knee. Carter was taken into custody a short time later and remains under guard at a Little Rock hospital.
