Police make second arrest in Sieber slaying

  • MURDER SUSPECT: Alundra Hampton
A second arrest was made Friday night in the Nov. 15 slaying of Harvel Todd Sieber, 47, at a detail shop at 815 E. Capitol Ave.

The Little Rock Police Department said it obtained a warrant Wednesday that was used Friday in North Little Rock to arrest Alundra Hampton, 24. She was turned over to homicide detectives and charged with capital murder, aggravated robbery and first degree battery. She also was named in failure to pay fine and failure to appear charges from Little Rock, North Little Rock and Pulaski County district courts

In the apparent robbery Nov. 15, a woman pulled a gun on the shop owner. Sieber, a truck salesman who was in the parking lot, pulled his gun to intervene but was fatally wounded. Mitchell Hines, 75, the shop owner,  was shot in the leg. The woman fled in a car occupied by others.

Thursday, the police charged Corey Williams, 19, with capital murder and other charges. He also was arrested in North Little Rock.

A reward had been offered in the case.

PS: Coincidentally, warrants were issued in this case the same day Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed NRA-shaped legislation to dramatically expand the places where concealed weapons may be carried in Arkansas. Lead sponsor Rep. Charlie Collins and others said the presence of "good guys with guns" would protect others in colleges, football stadiums, government buildings, courthouses, bars and churches. The Sieber case illustrates that a good guy with a gun is not always a guarantee that the bad guy will be stopped.
