Authorities alleged at the time that Charles Quintana admitted that he planned to kill his wife, while Stacy Keplinger admitted to shooting and killing Stacy Quintana during a robbery. During the robbery, another man was stabbed with a paring knife, police said. 

Charles Quintana was charged with capital murder, kidnapping, aggravated robbery and first-degree battery in connection to his wife's death.

Tracy Stone received 60 months in the Arkansas Department of Correction after taking the guilty plea in Greene County Circuit Court.
