LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola is asking questions about the parole system.
Stodola wants to know why Daryl Dennis, 46, did not have a hearing to revoke his parole before the May 10 kidnapping and murder of 18-year-old Forrest Abrams.
Mayor Stodola told THV 11 News that this is another example of why the current parole system in place is not working.
"It's really what I think is the system. It's really, I think, a glaring example of a system that is dysfunctional and has run amuck," he said.
Dennis was charged with capital murder, two counts of aggravated robbery, and two counts of kidnapping in the death of Forrest Abrams. Abrams was found dead in the roadway at 11th St. and Woodrow St. on May 10.
402 parole officers keep track of more than 56,000 probationers and parolees in Arkansas.
