Ten Commandments monument to be placed again at state Capitol

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) - A monument honoring the Ten Commandments will be placed again at the state Capitol in Little Rock, nearly a year after a man used a vehicle to destroy a similar monument.

According to a report from Little Rock television station KARK, the new monument will be reinstalled Thursday during a ceremony by the American History & Heritage Foundation.

The monument was built with private funding after the Arkansas legislature approved a bill in 2015 to create a monument on the state Capitol grounds. The monument was installed in June 2017 but was destroyed one day after it was placed.
