Community wants answers in NLR woman's death


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A North Little Rock community is demanding the public's help in finding the person who beat a woman to death earlier this week.

The group Arkansas Stop the Violence along with Parents of Murdered Children and North Little Rock police all have the same message:one murder is too many.

Billy Booth, still in shock, goes over what he says was a life lost too soon. According to Booth, his niece, Vicki Booth, was stabbed and killed on Wednesday, April 1.

"It's hard to believe something like that, but when it gets close to home it's for real," said Billy.

Police are releasing very little information at this time. In an earlier report, police stated that they found booth's battered body lying in her apartment.

My Town Hero: Veterinarian gives back to NLRPD by helping K-9s


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - In every Arkansas community, you'll find heroic police officers, and often times they have heroes of their own.

THV11's Denise Middleton introduce us to a man that the North Little Rock Police Department considers invaluable to the city and its police force.

They protect and serve us every day, but on this special day, North Little Rock police officers are honoring someone who's served them and their canine officers for more than three decades.

"As we take suspects to get checked out, the K-9 also gets checked out, so that's a lot of money through the years," said Chief Mike Davis.

But Dr. Richard Allen has never charged the department a penny.

Since 1983, he's donated his services, helping them save thousands in veterinarian expenses.
