A Pulaski County man, 57 year old John Stacy, was arrested Saturday on two separate warrants, one charging him with attempted murder from one incident, and then a second warrant charging him with murder from a separate incident.
According to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called out just after 1 a.m. to an assault victim, in which a man allegedly entered a woman’s house while armed.
The man, identified as Stacy, held the woman at gunpoint and assaulted her.
Around 10 hours later, deputies were called to a different residence in response to a call about a gunshot victim. Upon arrival, they found an individual deceased from a gunshot wound.
The names of the assault and murder victims have not been released.
In addition to murder and attempted murder, Stacy is also being held in the Pulaski County Detention Center on kidnapping, burglary, and assault charges.
The motives behind the murder and assault are still under investigation.
