Two teenagers arrested Monday in the killing of a central Arkansas woman found dead in her home led police on a pursuit along Interstate 630 before their eventual arrest, authorities said.
Zereak Oliver, 18, and Martieo Nash, 18, each face charges of capital murder and aggravated robbery, according to a news release from the Sherwood Police Department.
On Monday, officers responded to a Sherwood home in the 5900 block of South Woodview Drive, where they found 46-year-old Regina Jackson on the floor with a gunshot wound, authorities said.
Emergency medical personnel were called to the home, and Jackson was pronounced dead at the scene.
Sherwood police say officers, with assistance from the Arkansas State Police, were eventually able to arrest the pair after a pursuit that ended in Arkansas' capital city.
The Highway Patrol division received a be-on-the-lookout request Monday night for a navy blue Dodge Challenger, state police spokeswoman Cpl. Liz Chapman said.
A short time later, a trooper spotted the car on I-630, identified it as the suspects' vehicle and tried to pull it over, she said.
"The vehicle failed to stop, and continued traveling on Interstate 630," Chapman noted in an emailed statement. "Troopers pursued the vehicle until it came to a stop in the area of 15th Street in Little Rock."
Oliver and Nash were taken into custody "without incident" and turned over to Sherwood police, according to the spokeswoman.
They remained at the Pulaski County jail as of Tuesday morning, and bail was set at $100,000 for each, according to an online inmate roster.
