Details from today's homicide on E. 7th St.

Posted By on Fri, Apr 18, 2014 at 9:00 PM

The Little Rock Police Department has issued an incident report detailing information about this morning's homicide at 224 E. 7th Street in which a woman allegedly stabbed her husband before attempting suicide by slashing her wrist. Police identified the victim as Kenneth Patterson, 61,  and have identified Marilyn Patterson, 61, as a suspect in the crime.  

Police responded to the location after a call from Marilyn Patterson's daughter just before 7 a.m. When police arrived, they found Marilyn Patterson lying on the living room couch with her right wrist deeply slashed and bleeding heavily. The floors of the apartment, the report says, were covered in large amounts of blood. Police found Marilyn Patterson's husband, Kenneth Patterson, unresponsive in the bedroom with his neck slashed.

MEMS ambulance and the Little Rock Fire Department responded, but Kenneth Patterson was pronounced dead at the scene. Marilyn Patterson was transported to UAMS, where she was treated for her injuries. No word yet on whether she'll be charged in her husband's death.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    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.
