Pulaski County Man Faces Double Murder Charges in Deaths of Two Jonesboro Men

February 20, 2004 - Posted at 7:46 a.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Eddy Stanley Harris pleaded innocent yesterday to murdering two Jonesboro men in 2002, but first will face trial for the murder of his infant daughter last fall.

Harris was in the Pulaski County jail accused of killing his seven-week-old daughter Sherryse in September when he was charged with killing Craig Tedder and Brad Dison over drug money.

He appeared in Little Rock District Court yesterday on those capital murder charges, but a trial date for that cast has not been set yet.  Harris is already scheduled to begin his murder trial for the death of his baby next month.

Harris has claimed that he dropped the child and that's how she received the blow to her head that killed her.

The two cases against Harris are expected to go on simultaneously.
