North Little Rock police on Wednesday arrested a man on a murder charge in connection with a November pedestrian death, while another woman faces charges of hindering the investigation, according to a police news release.

Officers served Roseikeo Wright, 25, with warrants for his arrest on charges of capital murder and leaving the scene of an accident issued late in November.
