— Authorities have made an arrest in the murders of an Arkadelphia man and his two young stepdaughters.

Arkansas State Police said 19-year-old Riakos Lizana was arrested about 9:30 p.m. Saturday at an Arkadelphia apartment complex. He was arrested on a capital murder warrant.

Bobby Jean Galbraith, 40, Adiele Crutchfield, 6, and Marley Crutchfield, 4, were found dead Thursday night at 1032 South 11th Street.

Galbraith's body was found after his wife returned to the home. Responding authorities later discovered the two young girls dead. The couple's six-month-old daughter was inside the home unharmed.

It wasn't immediately clear how investigators linked Lizana to the crime.

No information on the motive or the cause of death has been released. Police said more details would be released at an initial hearing next week.

When are we going to wake up and send these illegal invaders back to the hell holes they came from?
How many more LEGAL citizens have to die at the hand of someone who shold not be in this country?

Yes, Walter, because only illegal immigrants kill people. And all hispanic people are illegal. How very keen of you to notice.
