LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office was searching for a second suspect in the fatal hit-and-run of a 22-year-old woman, and just after 3 p.m. Monday, deputies reported that he has turned himself in.

Lt. Carl Minden said 33-year-old Marvin Kentral Collins turned himself in around 2 p.m. Authorities suspect Collins of being a passenger in the vehicle that hit and killed Heather Cater, 22, on Sept. 3.

Collins is being booked into the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility.

According to authorities, Deonte Jones was also arrested. He was reportedly charged with capital murder, leaving the scene of a fatal accident, delivery of a controlled substance, and fleeing.

Police reports detailed that Cater had just gotten off work and was speaking with other coworkers near her parked car when she saw a vehicle coming her way. Witnesses said she was trying to get out of the way when she was struck more than once by the vehicle.
