TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) — An Oklahoma couple is charged with capital murder in southwest Arkansas in the death of an Oklahoma man whose body was dumped at the Texarkana Speedway.
Miller County prosecutors charged 46-year-old Leslie Bruce Larcade and 37-year-old Chrystal Larcade of Broken Bow in the death of 45-year-old Shannon Deval Watkins of Broken Bow. The two are also charged with kidnapping and abuse of a corpse.
Both have pleaded not guilty.
Watkins' body was found Aug. 13 after a speedway employee reported seeing a man and woman dump the body on speedway property.
The Larcades were arrested later that day after a police chase in Howard County.
Prosecuting Attorney Carlton Jones told the Texarkana Gazette that a decision has not been made on whether to seek the death penalty.
