Murder Trial for Accused Killer of Two Jonesboro Men Underway in Little Rock

JULY 21, 2004 - Posted at 7:58 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A Conway woman who secretly recorded a man's confession of killing to Jonesboro men is scheduled to testify today in his capital murder trial.

23-year-old George Larue Hall is charged with fatally shooting 24-year-old Craig Tedder and 27-year-old Brad Elliot Dison in May 2002.

The woman, who was working with Conway police, recorded the confession last year with a microphone hidden in her hair. 

In the tape, Hall says the men were killed because of money from a drug deal.  Prosecutors say Tedder and Dison had given Hall about $25,000 to buy marijuana, but Hall lost the money when he was arrested by Conway police.

Hall's cousin Eddy Stanley Harris, Jr. also faces murder charges from the deaths of the Jonesboro men.
