Bond Set at $1 Million for Suspect in Fatal Trumann Stabbing

JANUARY 31, 2006 - Posted at 12:28 p.m. CST, updated at 2:17 p.m. CST

 

TRUMANN, AR - A judge set bond at $1 million this morning for a Trumann man charged with the fatal weekend stabbing of another Trumann man, as well as the wounding of another man from Denver, Colorado.

Trumann Police Chief Larry Blagg told K8 News that the attorney for Charles Lee Jones of Trumann formally waived a probable cause hearing for his client this morning, and that Jones is now being held at the Poinsett County Jail in Harrisburg.  Jones is charged with second-degree murder, first-degree battery and tampering with physical evidence.

Blagg says authorities have also now found what they believe to be the weapon used in the crime, explaining that a "lock-blade folding knife" was found in evidence that had been previously collected in the residence of Jones. 

Arlen Campbell, Jr., 33, of Trumann, died shortly before noon Sunday at the NEA Medical Center after being involved in an alleged altercation with Jones and another man at 12:07 a.m. Saturday on the parking lot of a vacant commercial building on Highway 463-South.

Chief Blagg says a pre-trial hearing is set for Jones on March 1, at the Poinsett County Courthouse in Harrisburg.
