Man charged after woman run over by car, unborn baby killed

SEARCY, Ark. (KTHV) - Tragedy struck just outside of White County after an expecting mother lost her unborn child after she was run over by a car, which authorities said was driven by her boyfriend.

As of THV11's last check, 30-year old-Stephanie Jones, of Searcy, was listed in satisfactory condition at White County Medical Center. That basically means that she's conscious, and her vital signs are stable.

Meanwhile, her boyfriend, 30-year-old Robert Jones, of Searcy, faces charges of DWI, domestic battery and negligent homicide.

"Really you couldn't hear nothing--just seeing all the lights," William Harlan said as he recalled a few nights ago when authorities swarmed his neighborhood along Nicholson Road near Searcy. "When I came outside, they were lined up on both sides of the street."

Check your numbers: $1 million Powerball ticket sold in Searcy

SEARCY, Ark. (KTHV) -- The second largest Powerball jackpot in history stands at $550 million and will be up for grabs in this Saturday's Powerball drawing, but a few lucky winners have already scored $1 million from last night's drawing. One of those winners just so happened to buy their ticket right here in Arkansas.

"It's kind of like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory almost. I don't know. It's cool," said Sean Cannon, an attendant at Crossroads Express II in Searcy.

Cannon said he knew nothing about his store selling a $1 million dollar ticket until he answered the phone when THV11 called.

"I pick up the phone, and I was like 'Wait a second. This is Channel 11 calling about a $1 million ticket! No way! Yeah, I guess we sold it!,'" said Cannon.

But, who bought that million dollar Powerball ticket still remains a mystery. Scott Darby, a regular customer at Crossroads Express said unfortunately it wasn't him.

Plyler started on the back nine and made the turn at 2-over 38. She birdied the par-5 2nd hole and par-3 3rd hole to move to even par. Bogeys on the 5th and 7th holes moved her back to 2-over.

Harding University opts out of concealed-carry law

SEARCY, Ark. (AP) - Harding University has opted out of a state law that allows faculty and staff members to carry concealed guns on campus.

Harding spokesman David Crouch says the private school already has a no-weapons policy in place in campus. He says the school's board of trustees voted to continue that long-standing policy and not allow any weapons on campus.

Crouch tells The Daily Citizen that the policy is in effect for Harding's campuses in Searcy, North Little Rock, Rogers and Memphis, Tenn.

The board made the vote after the university's Faculty Welfare Committee, Department of Public Safety and another school committee recommended opting out.

Several Arkansas colleges and universities have opted out of the new law, passed this year by the Legislature.
