Ashley County Man Gets Life Sentence for Murder by Fire

August 15th, 2019 by

Murder by fireWednesday, Anthony Brown, age 49 of Parkdale, was convicted of Murder in the First Degree.

Around 11 o’clock, New Year’s eve, Ashley County Sheriffs Deputies were dispatched to the 300 block of School Street in Parkdale, in reference to an incident where a man, later identified as Jesse Burton (47 years old}, was injured,

Allegedly, Brown had thrown  gasoline on Burton, setting him on fire. Mr Burton died as a result of his injuries.

Judge Bynum Gibson sentenced Brown to life in prison. In Arkansas, a life sentence means life.

The deputy prosecutor Frank Spain, who represented the state, commented, “I am pleased with the jury’s findings and the court’s sentence. ”
