  • Arson/Capital Murder - Arkansas

    MORROW, Ark. (AP) - A Morrow man has been arrested on arson and
    capital murder charges in connection with a house fire in which his
    wife died.
    Richard Doyle Cantrell, 61, was arrested Tuesday, Washington
    County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jak Kimball said.
    A fire Nov. 21 killed Norma Nell Cantrell, 59, and destroyed the
    couple's home, Kimball said.
    "She died as a result of an arson which makes it automatically
    capital murder," Kimball said. "It's very possible that the
    intent of the fire was nothing more than for insurance."
    According to an arrest warrant, Cantrell had an $80,000 home
    insurance policy that he tried to collect the day after the fire.
    Prosecutors said investigators determined the fire was
    intentionally set, and that gasoline was used to start the fire in
    the house's utility room.
    Richard Cantrell told investigators that he awakened because of
    the smoke, went outside to turn on the hose, then tried to call
    911, and later went back inside to warn his wife, who needed a
    walker to get around.
