  • 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.
