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.
