Accused killer claims innocence; says Beverly Carter's death 'accident'

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2014 at 10:59 AM


KARK has interviewed Arron Lewis about the slaying of real estate agent Beverly Carter. He said he did not murder Carter and that her death was an accident. He also said he had not abducted Carter, that she had accompanied him willingly.

Here's the 2nd part of KARK's three-part series on the interview. The third will be aired at 10 p.m. tonight.

Strange comments.

Many of the details of the crime — including an affidavit for an arrest warrant — have been under seal and Prosecutor Larry Jegley tells KATV he may seek a gag order in the case.

UPDATE: Lewis, who is being held in state prison because his parole was revoked, should not have been allowed to give a media interview, KATV is reporting. Channel 7 says two employees have been suspended for allowing the interview.
