From Pocahontas, Ar.
The man accused of murdering four family members in Randolph County has been found guilty by a jury.
Billy Green is charged in the deaths of Carl and Lisa Elliott and their two children in a drug deal that went bad.
Now where does it go from here.
A lot of people are not for the death penalty but in this case I believe the ways the children suffered it is the best choice.
They didn't get the chance at a life why should he.
According to Third Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Henry Boyce, Chad Green was found guilty of 4 counts of capital murder and one count of kidnapping. The capital murder convictions carry life in prison without the possibility of parole.
It took the jury just over an hour to find Green guilty of the crimes.
His son plea bargained and testified against his father so he received a lesser sentence.
Chad Green was accused of murdering 30-year-old Carl Allen Elliot, 27-year-old Lisa Elliot, 8-year-old Felicia Elliot, and 6-year-old Gregory Elliot.
The 6-year-old Elliot was found dead in the family's Dalton home on the morning of July 30, 1998. Lisa was found dead on the porch of her father's nearby trailer. Carl's body was found in the Eleven Point River on August 1, 1998 and the bones of Felicia Elliot were discovered in a dry creek bed in Warm Springs on September 7, 2000.
In July 2003, Green and his father, Billy Dale Green were arrested on unrelated charges and then charged with the murders.
Billy Dale Green is currently serving life in prison on a drug charge and awaiting a retrial of the Elliot murders pending the outcome of his present appeal.
