Law Enforcement Agencies in the two areas of the Ozarks are investigating incidents that result in the deaths of two individuals:
A Springfield man is behind bars for allegedly killing a Marionville woman.
Lawrence County sheriff, Brad Delay, says deputies were called to a home north of Marionville off of Highway 14 around 1:30 this afternoon. In the home, a 53-year-old woman was found deceased. The 40-year-old man was taken into custody without incident and is booked in the Lawrence County jail on suspicion of first-degree murder.
Sheriff Delay says it seems the two knew each other and this was not a random crime. No names are released at this time.
Meanwhile, one man is dead and another man is in custody following a shooting in Mountain Home late Monday night. Mountain Home Police Chief Carry Manuel says police were notified of the shooting incident at 10:52 Monday night.
Police responded to an apartment complex in the city and found a male who had died. A male suspect was located in a nearby apartment and was taken into custody.
No names have been released at this point. Manuel says the investigation is continuing and he anticipates more information will be released later today.
