Two teens arrested in the kidnapping and murder of a Faulkner County woman last month appeared in court on Wednesday afternoon.
Tacori Mackrell, 18, and Robert Smith, Jr., 16, are facing Capital Murder charges in the killing of Elvia Fragstein, 71.
Fragstein is believed to have been abducted from a Conway shopping center on July 7. Her body was found July 11 on a roadside in Jefferson County. Her car was found burned south of Pine Bluff that same week.
In court Wednesday, the prosecution was granted a continuance… asking for more time to evaluate evidence before filing formal charges.
The state provided a copy of the sealed affidavit and crime lab results to defense attorneys. Each suspect is represented by an appointed public defender who indicated their clients would plead not guilty at the next court date in September.
