  Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police and U.S. Marshals have arrested the third suspect wanted in connection with the murder of an Arkadelphia convenience store clerk.

  Craig Allen Wade, 24, of Pine Bluff was taken into custody without incident shortly after 2 PM today at a southwest Little Rock motel.  Wade was identified from a photograph circulated through a State Police news release Thursday evening (January 29th) http://asp.arkansas.gov/news-releases/detail/two-suspects-arrested-in-connection-with-clark-county-store-robbery-murder

  Wade is charged with capital murder and aggravated robbery.  James L. Gray, Jr., 36, and Laron Edward Williams, 27, both of Pine Bluff, were arrested by State Police last week.  Both Gray and Williams face similar charges.

Brown, 24, of 290 Frost Road, Arkadelphia.  Brown was the lone clerk inside the store when the three entered about 4:40 AM.

  Wade has been transported to the Clark County Jail in Arkadelphia where Gray and Williams are also being held.
