The chance of a new death sentence for Tim Howard was taken “off the table” today as the judge and attorneys on both sides prepared for the retrial of Tim Howard on charges of murdering a man and woman in Little River County in 1997.

Gov. Mike Beebe will not issue a last-minute pardon for Rolf Kaestel, who has served 33 years of a life for a $264 robbery, despite two parole boards’ recommendations that Kaestel be released and pleas on Kaestel’s behalf from the man he robbed.
