Circuit Judge Sam Pope has set an August 29 omnibus hearing for a Lake Village man charged in the April 17 deaths of two children and the injury of their mother.
Robert Carter, Jr., 23, of Lake Village, is accused of driving a vehicle into the yard of a Dermott residence located at 321 West Iowa Street where Latasha Figures, 24, Carter’s former girlfriend and her two children lived.
As Carter drove into the yard he is alleged to have struck and killed 18-month-old Amoni Elasia Carter, 18 months old and critically injured 4-year-old Nekole Carter, who later died at a Little Rock hospital. Figures was also injured.
Carter is being held without bond, charged with two counts of capital murder and one count of attempted capital murder.
