On Tuesday, July 8th, a motion to continue was considered and granted. The review hearing has been continued to Friday, July 11th at 9 a.m. in District Court. This Friday it will be 60 days since the murder and 58 days since Hile was arrested. According to the Garland County prosecuting attorney’s office, the State of Arkansas has 60 days to decide whether to prosecute or allow a prisoner to go free.

There is a gag order in place in the Murry murder. Hile was arrested May 15th at the Veterans Hospital in Little Rock. He was charged with murder in the first degree and held on $100,000 bond.

Murder in the first degree according to section 5-10-102 B of the Arkansas Statutes and Codes states the person or an accomplice causes the death of any person under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life.

According to Garland County Detention Center records Hile has not spent all of his time in jail. Garland County Judge Rick Davis said it is not uncommon for prisoners to be sent elsewhere for mental health evaluations. No one is saying Hile was sent away for mental health evaluations. No one is saying anything in this matter.

The next action in this matter is the review set for July 11th at 9 a.m. in the Garland County District Court.
