An amazing, controversial case exposes the sordid underbelly of this beautiful, southern city.
Bill McArthur is a criminal attorney in Little Rock, Arkansas, a picture postcard southern city that seems to attract controversy as easily as it beguiles visitors. As a result of one of the most spectacular cases the city has ever seen, Mr. McArthur is known to many as "the man who killed his wife."
On July 2, 1982, Alice McArthur was waiting for her husband to come home so they could leave for a weekend out of town. They never made it. A man disguised as a flower deliveryman came to the door and killed her in an upstairs closet. The murder exploded into the headlines, the case quickly became a media circus, and city and state officials were drawn into the show, alternately defending and attacking the two competing hypotheses surrounding the murder.
LITTLE ROCK is a fascinating, point-by-point examination of the case that exposes its strange details, questioning and probing at every turn. It is a fascinating tapestry of confounding questions, larger-than-life characters and strange alliances that ultimately fingered Bill - without ever proving his guilt.
