MELBOURNE, AR (KAIT) – A 72-year-old woman is accused of stalking a man from California to Region 8.

Izard County sheriff’s deputies arrested Melanie Moorehead of Santa Monica, California, last Wednesday on criminal trespassing charges.

According to Sheriff Tate Lawrence, Moorehead traveled from Santa Monica to Izard County for the purpose of seeing a man with whom she has been infatuated for several years.

He said Moorehead had stalked the man in the past in California.

The object of her desire was not home on the day of her arrest.

Hawkins appeared in Izard County District Court the day after her arrest, given a court date, and released on her own recognizance with a no-contact order.
