Law and Order in the Ozarks (Part LX): Man charged with murder

The June 23 issue of the Newton County Times reports that a 48-year-old man, Jackie Campbell of Vendor, has been charged with the murder of a 40-year-old woman, Alice Lloyd. The shooting death is believed to have occurred on June 16, though Campbell was not arrested and charged until Lloyd's body was recovered from "a swimming hole in the Hurricane area" of neighboring Johnson County. The news report suggests no motive but says authorities believe Campbell shot Lloyd at his home and then took her body to Johnson County.

Other headlines relate to the upcoming ElkFest and the naming of Newton County's Farm Family of the Year. Still others include these:
  • Forestry grants available for rural fire fighting equipment
  • Sewage continues to present health risks.
