DELIGHT, AR- Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division and deputies of the Pike County Sheriff’s Department are continuing their investigation today into the murders of two women and a child.
Around 7:00 p.m. Saturday evening , authorities received a 9-1-1 telephone call reporting a shooting incident at a home on Highway 301, southwest of Delight in Pike County.
Found dead at the scene were Dana Hill, 33, of Delight and Julie Hartsfield, 54, from Waldo in Columbia County.
Autumn Hartsfield, 9, was wounded during the shooting incident and was transported from the scene to a Hot Springs hospital where she later died.
Timothy Allen Hill, 43, also of Delight was taken into custody at the scene and is being held today in connection with the murders as the investigation continues.
Initial findings during the investigation have caused agents and deputies to believe the shooting arose out of a domestic disturbance which may have preceded the gunfire.
We have a crew on the way to Pike County and will have more developments throughout the evening.
