Little Rock police said Kimeisha Harris was found dead on the floor of her home in the 2700 block of Longcoy Street in the John Barrow Addition about 4 p.m. Saturday.
Police responding to a call were directed to the front door by Quincy Harris. After interviews, Harris was charged with first-degree murder. A police release didn’t specify the cause of the death of Harris’ wife. The Pulaski jail roster said Harris was also charged with being in possession of a firearm and on a warrant for failure to appear on an earlier misdemeanor charge.
It was the second homicide in less than a week in the neighborhood, but there’s no indication of a connection. Officers responding to a shooting in the 3500 block of Longcoy early Dec. 23 later found an 18-year-old fatally wounded and two others with minor gunshot wounds after a car accident nearby.
