Prosecutor Describes Course in Missing Girl Case

AUGUST 20, 2004 - Posted at 3:08 p.m. CDT

 

GILMORE, AR - The prosecutor in Crittenden County says he has taken no action yet in pursuing a case in the death of 7-year-old Patricia Ann Miles.

The girl vanished Sunday and her body was found in a field yesterday.

Prosecutor James C. Hale, Sr. says he has not yet taken any action to alter the case against Jo Ann Buchanan.  The woman was arrested Monday on a kidnapping charge and is being held in the Crittenden County Jail in lieu of $1 million bond.

Hale says any charge in the girl's death will likely be filed in the county where the child was killed.

The girl's body was found in Mississippi County after her abduction from Crittenden County.
