STAMPS, Ark.- An Arkansas man is in custody after a Stamps woman is found dead in her home.
Jonathan Tanner, 35, faces a first-degree murder charge.
Authorities say they were sent to the home of Deborah Barton, 55, for a wellness check.
Barton’s friends called and said no one had talked to or seen her in a couple of days.
The Stamps Police Department found Barton dead with neck trauma.
“The back door was actually unlocked,” says Chief Jeff Black. “It was closed, but it was unlocked. I made entry to the back door and she assisted me with the animals. And I found the victim in her bedroom.”
Tanner is being held in the Miller County Jail on a $1 million bond.
Arkansas State Police are now investigating.
