  • ARSON SUSPECT: Billy Ray Harrell
Isabella Moller at KARK/FOX 16 reports that Little Rock police have a suspect in custody for setting a fire in a house on Skywood, one of several in the vicinity in a short period.

Billy Ray Harrell, 28, is jailed on four arson counts.

Moller provided a police report that said Harrell got into an argument with his wife at the house on Skywood. She said he was drunk and she told him to leave. A short time later she found fire in the house.  He was arrested soon after, a suspect in that and other fires. The fires were reported in a 45-minute period at t 6907 Skywood Road, 2100 Durwood Road, 6512 Brentwood Road and near Kings Row Drive.  These are nearby in northwest Little Rock, near Cammack Village. A couple apparently were set in carports. Damage varied.

    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.
