February 24, 2004 - Posted at 3:38 p.m. CDT

 

POCAHONTAS, AR - A judge says he will let jurors hear statements from Charles Wayne Green during his trial on four counts of capital murder.

Both Green and his father, Billy Dale Green, are charged in the 1998 deaths of the Elliott family from Dalton in Randolph County.  They also face one charge of kidnapping related to the case.

They are accused of killing Carl Allen Elliott; his wife, Lisa; and their children, Felicia and Gregory.

The cases are to be tried separately.  The son is scheduled for trial on March 1 and Billy Green's trial is set for May 10.

Another, Jason Edward Green, is charged with hindering apprehension in the case.  He is to testify in both his father's and his brother's trials.

Prosecutor Henry Boyce said the state would seek the death penalty against Charles Green. 

Boyce also filed a seven-year-old rape charge against Charles Green for the alleged abuse of a girl who was reportedly 7 years old when the alleged incidents occured.  A May 10 trial date has been set for the rape charge.
