Suspect in Arkadelphia slayings due in court

Posted: Updated:

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (AP) - A suspect in the deaths of 2 young Arkansas girls and their stepfather is due in court for arraignment.

Riakos Lizana is due to go before a judge Tuesday in Arkadelphia.

Lizana was arrested in December in connection with the deaths of 4-year-old Marley Crutchfield, 6-year-old Adiele Crutchfield and the girls' stepfather, 40-year-old Bobby Jean Galbraith.

Police say a baby was also found unharmed at the Arkadelphia home where the bodies of the girls and their stepfather were found.

Lizana is being held at the Clark County Jail without bond on three capital murder charges.

The local public defender's office did not respond to a phone message for comment on Monday.
