Suspect in Death of Pine Bluff Teenager Pleads Innocent

OCTOBER 11, 2006 - Posted at 7:59 a.m. CDT

 

ARKANSAS CITY, Ark. (AP) - A truck driver accused of kidnapping

and killing a Pine Bluff teenager pleaded innocent to the charges

yesterday.

Forty-six-year-old Kenneth Ray Osburn, who lives near McGehee,

is charged with capital murder and kidnapping in the August 27th

death of Casey Crowder, a senior at Watson Chapel High School who

disappeared after running out of gas along U-S 65.

Prosecuting Attorney Thomas Deen says he expects the state to

seek the death penalty against Osburn. Deen also says that

surveillance tapes from businesses along U-S 65 and D-N-A evidence

link Osburn to Crowder's killing.

Crowder's body, which was identified through dental records, was

found in a ditch near McGehee on September Second.

Osborn, a widowed commercial truck driver, appeared before

Circuit Judge Sam Pope. After receiving Osburn's innocent plea,

Pope appointed Bing Colvin of Monticello as Osburn's attorney.
