  • CASSIE CARTER: Indictment in her death.
Conner Eldridge, the U.S. attorney for the western district of Arkansas, announced today the indictment of Kevin Bolton, 38, in a kidnapping that resulted in the death last year of Cassie Carter, 20 of Gurdon.

The case involved authorities in Clark County, the FBI and the sheriff of Cherokee, N.C., where Carter's body was found in a car trunk last year. Carter, mother of a newborn child, was last seen with Bolton, news accounts at the time said.

The indictment says Bolton abducted Carter March 12, 2013 and killed her sometime around March 20. The indictment said the crime involved "torture or serious physical abuse."

Bolton made an appearance in federal court in El Dorado today and will be held in custody pending trial. The charge may be punished by the death penalty.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
