I know this boy, April and Ron's wife and if you want must know yes April is capable of murder and she is the one who stand's to gain the most as far as her Mother she could not hurt a fly she is too timid and kind hearted April on the other hand has a heart filld with nothing but hatred and so black that she did go around bragging about her father the 19 year old boy is very kind hearted as well and has nothing but love for everyone so get a life and May God Have "Mercy On Your Soul For Judging Other People" because the bible say's it is a sin!!!!

If april had the baby 3 months ago, that would be in april, right? Ron was killed in January. That means the baby was born 3 months AFTER ron died. Is it just me or is this confusing to anyone else?

i read the story but dont think he did it. i hear rumors around pocahontas that it was some guy that wrestles
I did know Ron very well and let me tell you THIS is such a selfless, stupid, senseless killing. It was over an every day life situation that COULD have been resolved in a couple of days when everyone would of calmed down. He DID NOT deserve to be stapped repeatly, beaten and multated like he was. Ron was an honest guy who loved his wife (No the boy accused of his murder was NOT his wife's boyfriend but his daughters] and his children. Then after they did all this to Ron they tried to dump his body in the river to cover up the crime. Yes EVERYONE involved with Ron's murder should be arrested. EVERYONE involved should get what they deserve no matter what age they are..........

so instead of paying for a trial to try for the death penalty, we should plea bargain for 30 years and house this moron, feed him, cloth him and who knows what else we will pay for.GIVE ME A BREAK! He killed a man, he should be killed in a much worse way, but I know we can't cause him harm, it goes against his CONSTITUTIONAL rights....BLAH BLAH BLAH!
That's exactly why DA's plea bargain. They can go for the death penalty, but if he's found not guilty, he walks. If they plea bargain at least they have him for 20 to 30 years. I never said it was fair, but which would you prefer?

i think whatever happens to the boy, death penalty or whatever needs to happen to Ron's wife shirley. She is the one who helped with the entire thing. what happened was ron's daughter came up pregnant and she is 15 and he got pissed and beat the hell out of her (april) and then beat the hell out of shirley his wife. whatever he may have done...its not worth what happened to him. he didnt deserve to die like that, i really liked him.
he didnt beat the hell out of anyone but his daughter and his wife did nothing but lie to him and take advantage of him. they both had something to do with his murder and they both should b punished for his death.

I just spent 5 months in jail and got to hear straight from gregg smith ..more or less what happened. He (maybe) guilty of the murder of ron but from the way i myself see it he did not act alone. perhaps influenced by rage against rons abuse against his daughter (greggs girlfriend) and possibly with some coaxing from a female (or 2) None of it was right and ron should not have been murderd.he had family that loved him and depended on him.Now 19 year old gregg is going to have to spend many,many,many years in hell here on earth in arkansas prisons and could be killed himself (justice?)he has a mind of a child and the power of a bull. but whatever,thats what i think.

The boy has been braging in jail about how hard Ron was to kill.And that April and Shirley helped.Wasnt there and dont know,but sooner or later everyone has to pay.And to the person that said Ron was a drunk you are full of sh3t.And I will tell you that to your face thats why I posted my name on here.He was one of very few people I would do most anything for.I dont want Greg to get the death sentence life would be so much better he will like it down there I done a lot of time there,still know a lot of lifers.Hope they get the others involved in it.

rumor has it in school that april cathey is the one who killed her father but her boyfriend took the blame for her. now everyone thinks that tommie benham and that whole family is just screwed up. nobody wants to even walk near them in school, because they think their freaks. this town is messed the F up and the kids in this town are getting to be that way too nowadays. the adults need to step up, get with the school or some community leaders and help them! this is our future here. do we want it full of pregnant teenagers, drug dealers, abusers, and even murderers??? GOD HELP US!

he is innocent wrote:
listen guys i knew the boy personally he wouldn't do this and ron cathy was not a good man i don't care if he is dead the man had alot of enemies and the teenager had no motif to kill him and the teen does NOT deserve to die so quit saying that he is a kid what would you do if your kids were in that situation say the same crap your saying now 'hang him high' well forget you guys he is a boy and were not even sure if he did it so get a life and quit judging him and the next time you deside to do something so stupid put yourself in his position and see what you think then
if he put himself at 19 in a man place then treat him like a man
