Arkansas man due in court in 6-year-old's slaying
BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) — After her father and stepmother were arrested last year for chaining her to a dresser, young Jersey Bridgeman received something of a fresh start when she moved in with her mother and began kindergarten this fall in northwest Arkansas.
Then last week, searchers found the 6-year-old's body in a vacant home two doors down from her mother's and next to that of the family friend suspected of killing her.
"The fact that she went through what she went through when she was 5 ... and then this happens. She had such a rough life," Chelsea Jouett, a family acquaintance, said Tuesday after leaving a teddy bear at the girl's home in Bentonville, a community about 215 miles northwest of Little Rock best known for Wal-Mart's corporate headquarters.
