Update: Little Rock Man Admits Killing Woman, Sheriff's Office Says

The victim's body was found Friday (July 12) in woods off Dixon Road.
Update (July 15):
PULASKI COUNTY, AR - A Little Rock man is jailed after the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office (PCSO) says he admits to killing a woman whose body was found Friday.

James Clyde Martin, 36, is charged with first-degree murder, abuse of a corpse, and possession of firearms by certain persons.

Deputies say Martin was interviewed on Sunday and admitted to hitting Robbin Gore and strangling her with his belt until she was dead. He said he dumped her body in the woods across from the Dixon Road Trailer Park, according to the PCSO.

According to Martin's arrest affidavit, the PCSO received two calls after local media reported the discovery of the woman's body in the 1700 block of Dixon Road.

One of them was from Martin's father, who told deputies that Gore, a friend of his son's, had left her truck at the father's home on July 4 and had not returned to get it. The second call came from a relative of Gore's boyfriend who reported that he had not heard from her since July 4.

Martin, who was booked into the Pulaski County jail just after midnight today, will appear in court to answer the charges on August 20.
