JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police have arrested a man suspected of shooting and killing a Bono man then torching his truck.

Dakota Ray Cantwell, 21, of Wynne appeared in district court Friday afternoon where a judge found probable cause to charge him with first-degree murder and arson.

Cantwell is accused of shooting 59-year-old Jimmy Don Doyle, then setting his truck on fire. Doyle’s burned-out vehicle was discovered on Barnhill Road, near Trinity Railcar, on May 2.

According to a Probable Cause Affidavit, detectives "were able to discover that Jimmy Doyle owed Dakota Banks $50."

Doyle, according to the court document, meet with Cantwell on Barnhill Road where the man shot Doyle before taking "his vehicle and body to Deer Lake Road to get rid of the evidence." 

The state medical examiner’s office ruled Doyle was dead before the fire was set.

Detectives said a witness told them Cantwell admitted to killing Doyle. 

Cantwell's bond was set for $1,000,000, and he's set to appear in court again on June 29.
