LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Beverly Carter's murder has renewed the debate over the state of Arkansas' parole system.

Her accused killer, Arron Lewis, was on parole and is not the first Arkansas parolee to be accused of murder in the last couple years.

The state Department of Community Correction today told THV11 Lewis was a "pretty good parolee", reporteing to his parole officer regularly, passing all his drug tests and paying all his fees. Some say that is even more reason to tighten the state's parole laws.
