Carl Robinson


The second of two men charged last year in the shooting death and robbery of a Crossett woman and the injury of her granddaughter has pleaded guilty to murder and several other crimes.

Carl Robinson, 21, was sentenced to 90 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder, residential burglary, first-degree battery and two counts of robbery in the July 2016 home invasion where 60-year-old Karen Sivek of Crossett was killed and her granddaughter suffered a gunshot wound to the neck.

Davontae D. Morris, 19, also of Crossett, is awaiting sentencing for his role in the crimes. Morris pleaded guilty in March to first-degree murder, attempted capital murder, aggravated robbery, and aggravated residential burglary. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for July 24.

The 10th Judicial District Prosecutor’s Office has recommended that Morris be sentenced to 50 years in prison with an additional 120-month suspended imposition of sentence.
