LITTLE ROCK, AR – Three men from Fresno, CA were arrested in Phoenix, AZ in connection with the murder of Kylaus Williams on Monday night
Police in Phoenix were alerted by Pulaski County Sheriff’s investigators that three suspects in murder were going to be in the Phoenix area. Eric Emerson, Trenell Emerson, and Donnie Maiden were arrested Wednesday morning on drug and firearm possession charges.
On Thursday, sheriff’s investigators obtained warrants and flew to Phoenix to interview the suspects. Trenell Emerson and Maiden are charged with capital murder. Maiden is charged with hindering apprehension. They are awaiting extradition to Arkansas.
According to the sheriff’s office report, Williams was found shot to death in the driveway of 6907 Highway 161 on Monday night. The report says that Williams’ pants were around his knees and that “there appeared to be drag marks in the bloodstains on the driveway.” Five shell casings were found at the scene.
A witness at the home says he saw a silver Chevy Impala backing out of the driveway after the shots were fired. That car was found less than a mile away at Highway 161 and Linzy Loop.
