BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – A Baxter County inmate is back in jail after receiving medical treatment in Little Rock.

While unable to give the exact reason for the medical procedure, the  Baxter County Sheriff's Office did confirm that Gary Parks, 39, of Germantown, TN was taken to St. Vincent Hospital in Little Rock early Tuesday morning and was brought back on Thursday at 3:00 p.m.

Parks was under 24 hour security surveillance with two officers watching at all times.

Parks is charged with capital murder in the death of his stepfather, Dr. David Millstein. Milstein, a Mountain Home urologist, was found stabbed to death in his home in June 2006. Police arrested Parks in connection with the murder on Dec. 21, 2009.

The Baxter County Sheriff's Office is responsible for all inmate medical expenses. Although the exact amount of the Parks's medical bill is unknown, it is considered to be a significant price. The Baxter County Sheriff's Office says the medical allowance for the year is already $7,400 in the red.

It is unknown if the medical procedure will delay Park's trial proceedings.
