I do understand your comment, however, he thought he hit an animal which is very common in that area. His fault was that he did not turn around to go back and check. He is still a great man who would do anything for anyone.

NO, HE DID NOT "MURDER" A PERSON.
MURDER is the unlawful killing, with malice aforethought, of another human, and generally this state of mind distinguishes murder from other forms of unlawful homicide (such as manslaughter). As the loss of a human being inflicts enormous grief upon the individuals close to the victim, and the commission of a murder is highly detrimental to the good order within society, most societies both present and in antiquity have considered it a most serious crime worthy of the harshest of punishment.
Most unintentional killings are not murder but INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER. The absence of the element of intent is the key distinguishing factor between voluntary and involuntary manslaughter. In most states involuntary manslaughter results from an improper use of reasonable care or skill while performing a legal act, or while committing an act that is unlawful but not felonious.

You need to read the entire story before you start making accusations. Charge filed in fatal hit-and-run Pieces of a headlight lens may be the key in determining the driver in an Aug. 24 hit-and-run accident that killed a Lonoke woman. Lonoke County prosecuting attorney Chuck Graham last week filed a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving personal injury against Robert Lee Glover Jr., 50, of Carlisle in the death of Kimberly Perkins, 39, of Lonoke.The accident occurred at about 9:40 p.m., Aug. 24, on U.S. Highway 70 near Cypress Creek Road, approximately five miles west of Lonoke. According to the affidavit, state police investigators were called to the scene of the accident at about 10 p.m. A female, was lying in the ditch on the south side of the highway; there were pieces of what appeared to be vehicle headlight lenses in the middle of the highway. On Aug. 30, a Cause of Death report from the Arkansas State Crime Lab determined Perkins had died of multiple injuries; the manner of death was listed as homicide.
At the scene, Louis Mack, 62, said he and Perkins had run out of gas & she was attempting to flag down a ride to a gas station. Mack said Perkins was struck by a vehicle, which did not stop after striking her; he described the vehicle as appearing to be a dark colored Chevrolet Blazer or Suburban. The affidavit stated that another driver, who had passed the area before the accident, was interviewed the next day. The driver said he was traveling east on Highway 70 when he saw a woman who “appeared out of nowhere waving a white bag.” The driver reported having to swerve to miss the woman, but did not stop. He did call the Lonoke County Sheriff’s Office to report the woman standing in the middle of the road. In the course of the investigation, officers learned from a parts supplier that the pieces of headlight lens were from a 1999 through 2002 GMC Denali. That information was published in a press release asking for help in finding the vehicle; it was also noted that there should be significant damage to the front and along the right side of the vehicle. On Sept. 1, Glover contacted the state police and stated that he had struck a deer on U.S. Highway 70 at about the same time Perkins was struck. The affidavit later notes that Glover stated that on the evening of Aug. 24, he was driving a GMC Denali on U.S. Highway 70.

A trooper responding to Glover’s report found a gold, 2002 GMC Denali, with “damage to the vehicle was consistent to the type of damage that would have been caused by striking someone.”
The damage included a broken passenger-side headlight assembly, damage to the hood and the passenger side. With Glover’s consent, the vehicle was transported to Arkansas State Police Headquarters where it was secured. Later, investigators found that the headlight lens pieces found at the scene,“matched the remaining headlight in the vehicle.”
In an interview on Sept. 2, Glover recalled that he had been at a River Market restaurant where he consumed about three glasses of wine. He said he left the restaurant at about 7:30 p.m.
Glover said he then stopped at the Bearskin Lake Road residence of David Garner, a longtime friend, and left at about 9:15 p.m. to go home at Carlisle. Glover said he was in an area where there are fields on both sides of the road when he saw movement on the right side of his vehicle; he struck what he thought was a deer, but he did not stop. Glover recalled driving to Lonoke where he stopped to wash his car, having driven through an area with large numbers of insects. He said he did not notice any blood on the vehicle but he did notice the damage, which appeared similar to damage from previously striking a deer. Glover recalled reading the account of the hit-and-run in newspaper article,“on the Wednesday or Thursday after the crash,” and that he had “flipped out” when he saw the vehicle description. It was after reading the article that he contacted investigators, Glover stated. According to the responding investigator, damage to the vehicle was consistent with having struck someone. With Glover’s consent, the vehicle was taken to state police headquarters at Little Rock. On Sept. 5, an investigator interviewed David Garner, whose residence Glover reported having visited on Aug. 24. According to the affidavit account, Garner said Glover had left the house at about 9 p.m., that there had been no drinks, and that Glover did not appear to have been drinking when he arrived. The affidavit states that Garner said Glover had called the following day and said that he had hit a deer and,“made a mess of his vehicle.”
The affidavit notes that Garner stated,“[Garner] fully believes Glover had no idea he hit a person … Glover would never hit someone and keep going.”
Glover posted a $2,500 bond.
Plea and Arraignment in Lonoke County Circuit Court, Division, Judge Barbara Elmore, is set for 9 a.m. Jan. 22.
*****He turned himself in after he realized a person was hit in the same area as he though he hit a deer. Here people go assuming that someone is trying to get away with something dishonestly. It was an honest mistake...and the lady should not have been in the middle of the road flagging someone down in the dark, so now who is to blame? That's right...the MIDDLE of a two lane road with a ditch on one side and a body of water on the other. That's just asking for trouble. Not blaming her for her own death, just saying look at the entire picture before placing judgement and making accusatins about someone you do not even know. I have known Lee my entire life and he is a good, gentle, honest man with family values. His only fault was not stopping immediately...but then again, considering the area, I would not have either. He stopped once he got to a safe place with lights...
Not arguing about this subject, what is done is done, just upset that someone would judge a person before knowing the entire story. But that is what the world is today...DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA.

Number One: Why was she in the middle of the road trying to flag down a car?
Number two: Why was the man not doing this instead?
Number three: Why did the man she was with not report the accident immediately unless he had something to hide?
Number four: What was a 39 year old woman doing on a back road with a 60+ year old man?
Number five: In my opinion...Sounds like drugs or alcohol played a major roll in this accident that could have been prevented, had a woman used her head and not been standing in the middle of a dark road in a swamp area flagging down cars.
The first car reported the woman to police, so she was obviously a danger to motorists and herself in the first place.
Just saying....I agree with Honestly and the entire story needs to come out before you make judgement against an honest man who was the victim of this accident too.

Oh, and the man was so out of it that he reported to police that the vehicle was a dark color? Gold is not dark at all.....not even in the dark or to a color blind person.

Read the story and you will see that he DID report it immediately after he found out someone had been hit the same night that he drove through there and thought he hit a deer. He did not run and try to get the car fixed and cover it up, the car was still damaged when he reported several weeks later about being in the area that night. I wil fight for this man until I am blue in the face. Until you KNOW a person, you do not have the right to judge until you have all the facts.

OK opinions are just that opinions. So now you have expressed yours. Just hope this situation does not come into your life anytime in the future. Accidents happen. People make mistakes. End of story. No dirty cops, no getting off. He will serve his time for his mistake. She is serving her time indefinitely for her mistake. What about the driver of the truck that ran out of gas? Do you think he is guilty too? What a souchbag for having a woman stand in traffic and flag down a car to take HER to get HIM gasoline.

Actually, and unfortunately, I did know her and I know her parents(the Andersons). I have not posted anything negative about her, but...she was not perfect in any way. Carlisle and Lonoke are only 9 miles apart and I am her age and spent a lot of time in the Wal-Mart & Lonoke concrete parking lots in my teen years with the teens. I am not perfect in any way myself, but when you are this close to what has happened, and know both sides personal business, you know things that the public does not know. The only reason I did not post any negative stuff about her is that she has children and parents who may read this so I am careful not to upset the apple cart on either side, unlike others who are so quick to judge and post on a public forum.(Hint, hint) I am sure that her parents are crushed because of their loss, it's not fair to her kids to go through life with out a mother, even though she should have been home with her kid instead of out doing whatever she was doing, but it's also not fair to post things on here that are not true wehn you know nothing of the facts of the situation and apparently refuse to view the entire picture. And on your first topic = 3 glasses of wine, 2 1/2 hours later for a 220 pound man? He was far from drunk or disoriented. It was a week and a half later that he called in to report that it might have been him and the investigation started and if he was trying to hide something, don't you think he would have left out the part about that he had drank earlier in the evening? I mean come on, I can do this all day long, but I refuse to defend someone to someone who is just being a bully and making assumptions. Thank you.

I am just observing your comments and the comments of others, but if you read the article that Honestly posted, it stated that another person in a vehicle had already passed her and had called police and reported that she had jumped out in front of them and seemed to "come out of nowhere waving a white bag". If that is not enough to think that she was on something or did not have common sense, then what is? I think Honestly is right on the money and seems to know the facts about the situation as well as the people involved. Have you not ever looked down for a split second to, say, pick out a new CD, change the radio dial, or turn the heat or air up or down? Just that split second could be the fatal end.(Reminds me of the movie "Signs") And maybe you could be a little more kind on this public forum. You would not want your business posted all over a public forum. Opinions are opinions, but when the facts are planted right in your face and you continue to ignore them, but dig for more trouble, you are what is called "A DRAMA QUEEN". Just saying.
