A Little Rock woman was arrested Tuesday in a robbery and homicide from 2017, authorities said.

Leta Snow, 34, faces capital murder and aggravated robbery charges in the death of 45-year-old Eric Gavin of Little Rock, according to a Wednesday news release from the city's Police Department.

Gavin was shot to death during a 2017 robbery, police said.

A woman who was with Gavin at a home at 1314 W. 19th St. previously told police that two black males, one wearing a black hoodie and one wearing a blue hoodie, had forced themselves into the house March 26 of that year.

The woman said that one of the robbers told her to go to the rear of the house and the second stayed with Gavin, the release states, adding that both people left after she heard a gunshot.

Authorities said that “during the course of this year-long investigation,” they determined that Snow was a suspect. Police do not expect to make any more arrests in the investigation, the release states.

When asked about the description of the two males in hoodies, Police Department spokesman officer Steve Moore said it was likely “bad information [was] given right off the bat.”

As of Wednesday afternoon, Snow was being held in the Pulaski County jail, according to an online jail roster. No bail had been set.
