Police have arrested a Jacksonville man on murder charges in connection with human remains found in a wooded area off Corey Lane on Wednesday.
George Alan Smith, 33, of Jacksonville was arrested late Thursday and charged with capital murder. A statement from the Jacksonville Police Department said the arrest was made "as a result of information received and the ongoing investigation..."
The remains were found after an unidentified man in custody in Faulkner County led authorities to the site, as well as a second site about six miles away just outside of Jacksonville. No remains were found at the second site and Pulaski County authorities suspended their search of the area Thursday afternoon.
