Other than the one time the newspaper reported on it, what is going on with all the pre-trial motions and counter-motions. The newspaper acts like they are afraid to report anything on it.

The newspapaer is not scared to report on this case they are scared to report any case. The old editor would have never let the sheriff/police not provide information, the new eldorado news times is a joke.

We have been looking for updated information as well, but cannot find anything. It has been awhile since this was last mentioned.

The writers they have up there now are about the most no-talented people they could have found. They never write about anything newsworthy only inane crap that no one wants to read about. If it wasn't for getting to read the paper for free, I wouldn't waste fifty cents a day on it. Lord they need some old fashion reporters in that place. Here we have a murderer on trial with the death penalty at stake and no news on it.

I actually like this. Less public skepticism received from a jury and less leaking of information to help the defense form a stance. When the case is completed is when it becomes public knowledge. Also, the families of those involved are not drug through the mess. I think our newspaper is of less quality and leaves much more to be desired, especially the editorial section. However, allow the system to run its course. Media intervention is a problem we experience on the national level, with bleeding heart liberals pushing their agenda instead of reporting facts. Our country is in this poor position largely because of the media.

Instead of Short Rod having to move to Springdale(yuck) he should be named editor here.

Prosecutors Pursue Death Penalty Against Jeremy Perdue in 2010 AR Slaying of Fran Farley

Prosecutors said they will seek the death penalty for a man charged with capital murder in the fatal shooting of a 62-year-old woman in her El Dorado home last year.

Jeremy W. Perdue, 23, is already serving a 45-year prison sentence for a rape conviction. He wore a white jail uniform to court Friday, reflecting his incarceration in the Grimes Unit in Newport.

Prosecutor Jeff Rogers said he wanted to admit evidence from the rape case in the murder trial.

"It does go to motive," Rogers said.

If convicted of capital murder, Perdue could be executed or sentenced life in prison without parole. Prosecutors told the News-Times they will seek the death penalty.

Perdue's lawyers argued that evidence collected by police in the slaying of Fran Farley should be excluded at trial. They focused on two police interviews with Perdue, one at his home in Russellville and a second at the Russellville Police Department. Perdue had moved from El Dorado to Russellville before he was convicted in the rape case.

Perdue spent about an hour talking with police at the station before a detective read him his rights. After that, Perdue refused to speak with officers, and police collected a DNA sample from him.

Defense attorney Katherine Street forbade police from talking to her client after he was charged. During the hearing, she introduced video from the jail that shows a detective banging on a jail window on to get Perdue's attention. Perdue's mother, Debra Jo Watts, testified she saw the detective interact with Perdue in the courtroom following his first appearance in court.

Circuit Judge Hamilton Singleton did not immediately rule on the defense requests to suppress police evidence.

Farley's body was found Aug. 31 by a neighbor who checked on her after Farley's adult daughter, who was out of town, could not reach her mother.

The neighbor told police she found Farley slouched on a couch in the living room. Investigators said Farley had been shot in the head and left arm.

You are exactly right in my opinion.

In a past article by the News Times the police mentioned they believe Purdue murdered Farley with the intention of preventing her from testifying against him in a trial. I'm guessing that was the rape trial. This is why it pertains to motive and will likely be admitted.

Purdue is in prison for life already. He engaged in perverse sexual conduct with a very young minor and murdered an elderly woman in cold blood.

Death penalty is totally appropriate.

I have to feel for his Mom....as a Mom who had a son "in trouble" in the past (but nothing as serious as this)...I know how sick she feels...too sick to eat, even. I just want to lift her up in my prayers and help give her the strength she needs to see this through. If there are any other "prayer pals" out there, please join in.

The mom is also a victim of her son's actions. Let's not be selfish with the prayers.

At least she is still alive, Mrs Farley isn't.

I see that Biblical principles are not going to be applied here, so that makes your "prayers" insignificant to me and maybe to The Father ? She is not on trial....she is an innocent bystander....hurting just as the victim's family is.

You are only requesting prayers for the mother of the accused, thatís a little one sided as well.

Although differing philosophies have been stated, I havenít read any suggestions that you not pray for Jeremyís mother.

Pray for whomever you wish, just donít get nasty when others donít agree with you.

A good rule of thumb: If you donít want to be attacked on Topix, donít attack others.

You do not hold dominion over Biblical principals, nor do you hold power over others to tell them who they should or should not pray for.

Your opinion of the significance of other peopleís prayers is totally insignificant to anyone but yourself. And the same holds true for your allusion of what God thinks of other peopleís prayers.

How did they figure it was him who did it? Who's the girl he supposedly raped or whatever? This case is just plain sad. I knew Jeremy in high school and this schocked me because he just wouldn't have fit the profile back then, but then again people change and do messed up stuff.
