All 2018 Homicides Cleared in North Little Rock

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- On Feb. 27, Brigette Williams heard the words no mother ever wants to hear.

"They told us that they found him dead," says Williams.

Less than two weeks later, detectives were able to deliver a little bit of comfort. On Wednesday, North Little Rock Police arrested Ronnie Lee Woolfolk for the murder of her son, Domorion Williams.

Sgt. Amy Cooper with North Little Rock Police says, "These guys work countless hours to help bring a resolution to these cases to help their families."

Williams' death marked the city's sixth homicide of 2018. All six of those cases are now considered solved.

The same success has yet to be seen across the river. While Little Rock Police have only seen five homicides this year, officials say just one of those cases has been turned over to prosecutors, and no arrests have been made.

Kevin Scribner, Devon Howard's uncle, says, "Devon is more than just number four."

Howard was shot and killed Feb. 15 at the Eagle Nest Apartments. Police say witnesses told them two people forced their way into Howard's home, tried to rob him, and started shooting.

"It's still unreal because a life has been taken, and then someone's walking around the street as if it never happened," says Scribner.

Scribner says he's confident justice will be served, even though it won't bring Devon back. 

"An arrest does not undo the death," Scribner says.

All this uncle can do is put his faith in the police, and their process, and focus on his family's first priority, grieving a life lost too soon.
