NLR church holds Family Day


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Many of us spent time with family at barbecues and cookouts on yesterday's holiday, but a church in North Little Rock wanted to keep the party going all weekend.

The Greater Miracle Temple Worship Center had a church family day meant to be a combination fair and outreach event.

The center is working on expanding and working with some of the underprivileged communities in North Little Rock, and they gathered everyone on Sunday with plenty of fun stuff.

"We have a gigantic slide. We have a 90-foot obstacle course. We have basketball shootout...fun...food...just a lot of excitement for the community," said Pastor J. Morrill Gray.

Pastor Gray said the best part was a dunk tank where he spent a lot of time in, letting the congregation as he put it "get their frustrations out."

Pine Bluff escapee who stole truck captured by authorities


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A Pine Bluff inmate managed to escape and avoid police for more than 24 hours. But that chase came to an end as THV11 cameras were rolling.

Satterfield was reportedly spotted walking calmly along Highway 161 in broad daylight. When the arrest was made, he didn't even give up a fight.

"Two special agents with the Arkansas state police were driving down highway 161, right near Rosemary and they spotted him just walking along the highway," said Cathy Frye with the Arkansas Department of Corrections.

NLR church addresses security after SC fires


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – After several black churches in the south have burned, local church communities look to face their fears head on. Many have been saddened by the recent fires and are concerned that some may be too afraid to worship.

"There used to be a time when you would go to church and all was well, didn't have to lock the doors, no alarms," said Pastor William Robinson of First Baptist Church in North Little Rock. "Times have changed. Our people in our church here, I believe they are very much aware, they are alert."

For 30 years, First Baptist Church has been home for Pastor William Robinson. He's seen many things but it still isn't easy to see images of black churches burning across the south. Historic black churches like the one he's grown to love.

Pregnant woman shot and killed in NLR home


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Police are still looking for clues after a North Little Rock mother, 8 months pregnant with her third child, was found dead in her home Sunday.

Police say 36-year-old Megan Price was shot and killed in her home on North Oaks Lane, and although they've received around 40 tips on her death, none of them have provided leads in the case.

Price was found by her oldest daughter just after 11 a.m.

"I did not think it was real. I thought I was dreaming," said Keona Rouse, Price's daughter.

It was a sight no child should ever have to see, and one 20-year-old Keona Rouse says will haunt with her forever.

"I just never expected to come home and find her that way, because she didn't deserve that at all," said Rouse.
