Accused Family Murderer Pleads Innocent To Drug Charges in Randolph County

September 23, 2003 - Posted at: 7:48 a.m. CDT

POCAHONTAS, Ark. -- A father who is accused with his two sons in the murders of a Randolph County family of four pleaded not guilty Monday to drug charges filed twelve days before his arrest in the 1998 slayings.

47-year-old Billy Dale Green is accused of leading one of his sons on a high-speed chase through Pocahontas earlier this summer.  When he and the son were stopped by police, officers say they found a bag of crystal methamphetamine in the elder Green's vehicle.  Randolph County Sheriff Brent Early told K8 News, "Basically, he had possession of methamphetamine with a quantity...or enough to be considered beyond personal use."

Green and his son Charles "Chad" Green, 27, are charged with capital murder for the 1998 slayings of the Carl Allen Elliott family.  Another son, Jason Green, 26, is charged with hindering apprehension.  The three were arrested on July 30, the fifth anniversary of the Elliott family murders.

Billy Green's next scheduled court appearance is a preliminary motion hearing on the murder charges, set for October 6.
