Little Rock reaches 10 murders for 2015

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- After two men were shot and killed only minutes apart on Wednesday, Little Rock has reached 10 murders for the year.

It's a considerable decrease from last year, but police are saying it's still too many.

"We don't believe that these homicides are random," said LRPD spokeswoman Cassandra Davis.

"My first thought was, oh boy the task force is going to have to address this," added UALR criminal justice professor Dr. Stacy Moak about Wednesday's killings. "Oftentimes in a homicide you can't predict it. It doesn't follow a predictable pattern."

Moak is a criminal justice professor at UALR as well as a member of Little Rock's crime prevention task force, and says looking at the numbers Little Rock is improving in its violent crimes, but not yet where it needs to be.

A Place to Call Home:16-year-old hopes for forever family after 22 foster homes

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Being a teenager is awkward at best. It's certainly the case for a 16- year-old foster child we recently met. The only difference is that he doesn't have a family to guide him through such a tough, yet formidable, time in his life.

Through THV11's partnership with the Arkansas Department of Human Services, we meet at young man whose greatest wish is a family to adopt him.

"My name's Johnathan and I'm 16 and I'm in the 10th grade…I've never been to a zoo in my life until today."

It may seem peculiar, a teenager never having stepped foot inside a zoo. Especially tough to believe watching Johnathan interact with the animals. Even while feeding a rhino, he seems right at home.

"I've been in 22 placements altogether."

Private option enrollment high among Arkansas parolees

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas prison and parole officials say about 70 percent of the state's more than 52,000 parolees and probationers have signed up for the state's compromise Medicaid expansion.

They told the Legislative Criminal and Justice Oversight Task Force on Thursday that enrollment in the 'private option' Medicaid program could reduce recidivism in the state's overcrowded prison system.

Republican state Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson chairs the task force and said providing medical insurance provides parolees and probationers with mental health or substance abuse treatment at lesser costs.

Hutchinson also asked the three insurance companies that provide plans under the Medicaid expansion program to examine a requirement regarding mental health and substance abuse treatment referrals in rural areas.
