Update: Woman Still Jailed Day after Husband, Son Found Dead in Yell County

YELL COUNTY, AR - A woman remains jailed the day after the bodies of her husband and infant son were found in the Ouachita National Forest.

Brooke Floyd, 21, is not charged in the deaths of Brian Floyd, 33, and Harper Floyd, 10 months, but faces charges of Hindering Apprehension and Endangering the Welfare of a Minor.

She was found in a wooded area on Friday with cuts and bruises but it's been unclear how she was injured.

Officials with the Yell County Sheriff's Office say Mrs. Floyd is the only person of interest in the case.

Any further charges filed against her will be up to the prosecutor when he receives the not yet completed investigation files.

The bodies of the man and child were found Tuesday afternoon in a remote area off Forest Service Rd. 18 near where Mr. Floyd's pickup truck had been found the day before.

Authorities have not yet released details about what the Floyd family was doing in the area.
