Four juveniles are facing second degree murder charges after an attack on a 19 year old man resulted in his death.
The juveniles — identified at this time as R.W., 17, T.N., 16, C.R., 16, and J.G., 14 — are currently being held in multiple juvenile detention centers after a detention hearing Wednesday.
According to the Hot Spring County Sheriff’s Department, deputies were dispatched to the area near
Glen Rose Baptist Church around 7:30 p.m. on July 21 due to the assault of two men on Traskwood Road.
Deputies say that the four teens had attacked two men, aged 19 and 20, without provocation. One of the men was able to escape unharmed. The 19 year old later died from his injuries.
The 19 year old, identified as Kevin Thornton of Juneau, Alaska, was taken to Baptist Medical Center in Little Rock via ProMed Ambulance due to the extent of his injuries, and he remained on life support in the hospital’s intensive care unit until Wednesday afternoon. The Pulaski County coroner pronounced the man dead around 3:32 p.m.
Late Tuesday evening, investigators had gathered enough information regarding the four suspects to seek their arrest. During the night, two of the four were arrested. The other two turned themselves in early Wednesday morning.
Wednesday around noon, Seventh Judicial Circuit Judge Phillip Shirron held a detention hearing for the four teens based on charges of first degree battery, and all four were detained in various juvenile facilities.
The charges were later amended to second degree murder charges Thursday morning due to Thornton’s death Wednesday afternoon.
The juveniles’ names have not been released at this time, but it is believed that they will be charged as adults for the crime.
Thornton was in Hot Spring County visiting friends and relatives. At the time of the attack, he and his friend were on their way to see the girlfriend of the local man at her residence."

Bastards simply were driving around, came across 19-yr old kid walking home from church, jumped out of the truck and attacked the guy. The attack was unprovoked. Completely indefensible. The kids that did it are known troublemakers and total trash.

All I see is mean little SOBs that wouldn't hesitate to murder a 9 year old, 19 year old, 90 year old and everything in between if they thought they'd get away with it. What we've got now is thugs and gangstas in all colors and they are raising their bastards to be even worse.

The morons who did this come from families that are known trash in the county. It wasn't a surprise that either of them did something like this. It's just unique that they all did it together.
trash is what we get now

Every generation gets meaner and stupider and more likely to do this kind of stuff. Every generation gets worse and it's carried into every profession, law, medicine, business, you name it. Murder is obvious. The other ways these evil people are killing us are not so overt.

We need a tornado or something to clear out Dixonville and Traskwood. Then maybe Glen Rose area will be a decent place. Too much trash. Norwoods, Lewises, etc...
