A North Little Rock man was arrested Wednesday in the shooting death of a Maumelle man, according to a police spokesman.
Maumelle police officers arrested Jakobi Cortez Alston, 19, on a charge of first-degree murder Wednesday in the slaying Jan. 9 of Anthony Thomas Jr., 19, department spokesman Capt. Jim Hansard said Wednesday.
