LITTLE ROCK MAN CHARGED IN NEW YEAR’S DAY DEATHS ON I-30July 24, 2013
Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division arrested Kareame Cotton, Sr., 37, of Little Rock this afternoon in connection with the deaths of two individuals killed in a New Year’s Day motor vehicle crash along Interstate 30 near Scott Hamilton Road.
Arrests warrants for Cotton were obtained by State Police charging Cotton with two counts of negligent homicide and third degree escape.
Killed in the crash were David Harris, 64, and Maci Harris, 10, both of Little Rock.
The escape charge stems from Cotton’s attempt to flee the motor vehicle crash scene after he was handcuffed by Highway Patrol State Troopers investigating the crash.
