Suspect Captured After Deadly Stabbing In Bentonville

Officers responded around 9 a.m. to the 500 block of B Street where they found 25-year-old Keundra Allen, of Little Rock, in a grassy area with multiple stab wounds, according to police.

The suspect, Anthony Ballett, 39, of Rogers was arrested during a traffic stop on Highway 43 between Maysville and Cherokee City.

Neighbors who live in the area say they were shocked when they stepped outside this morning to see the heavy police presence and crime scene tape.

“I saw some cops couple of cops they were kind of going through the trash cans one of them was rolling a do not cross police tape around the bushes over there and I was like 'oh my God what do I do',” said neighbor Patricia Hill.

Hill said as she went to work she saw police stopping people at a bus stop at a Walmart store near the scene.

"The cops were there stopping people at the bus entrance because you can take the bus on the back side of Walmart," said Hill.

Bentonville Police are combing the area for any evidence.
