LONOKE COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - The man accused in the death of an Alabama woman has received bond in Lonoke County.
David Houston-Harvey appeared in Lonoke County District Court on Monday. He is accused in the murder of Laramie Cline. Cline’s body was found in a suitcase at Lake Pickthorne on August 20 after being reported missing while visiting Denver with Houston-Harvey.
According to the Lonoke County Prosecutor, Chuck Graham, the 23-year-old’s hearing was for the Abuse of a Corpse charge. He received a $150,000 bond.
We received questions and concerns from those worried Houston-Harvey would be allowed to bond out before Colorado investigators are able to determine where exactly Cline was killed.
Arkansas law enforcement has been working with Colorado investigators to determine where the murder took place, in order to prosecute a possible murder charge in that jurisdiction.
Houston-Harvey is still facing charges of Theft of Property, Terroristic Threatening, and Domestic Battery in Pulaski County. Two of those charges aren’t allowed bond, which means he likely won’t be released even with the lowered bond in Lonoke County for the Abuse of a Corpse charge.
A spokesperson with the Pulaski County Jail said Houston-Harvey is currently being held at the Arkansas Department of Correction.
