 JONESBORO, AR  (KAIT) – A Craighead County Circuit Court judge will hear four different cases on Monday, ranging from conspiracy to commit murder to computer child pornography. 

Larry Barnett, 69, of Jonesboro is accused of accidentally dialing the phone number of an employee he was plotting to kill. The employee told police he overheard Barnett plot the murder. Police say he also committed forgery at a local bank multiple times. According to police, Barnett owned Legend Motor Company in Jonesboro.

Another Jonesboro man will appear in court on charges of first degree battery, aggravated assault and carrying a weapon. Jonesboro police said Charles Lavell Bausley, 53, of Jonesboro was arrested in May for stabbing his therapist at Mid South Health Systems. At the time of his arrest, Bausley told officers “she is the devil and I got her,” according to the incident report. Police discovered a large kitchen knife inside a black briefcase after the stabbing.

In another unrelated case, Wesley Alexander Hull, 23, of Jonesboro will appear in court on computer child pornography charges. According to police, Hull was arrested for contacting a juvenile on the internet and arranging to have sex. Detectives said Hull was using a non-registered Facebook account at the Craighead County Public Library to chat with a girl. Hull is a convicted sex offender from a computer child pornography charge from May, 2013.

Lastly, a 67-year-old-man is due in court Monday on charges of internet stalking of a child. According to police, Jimmy Turner, 67, of Jonesboro tried to pay a minor for sex online. However, the man portraying himself to be a 14-year-old-girl was a detective. Police said Turner arrived at a location where he was supposed to meet the girl, when he was arrested.
