FORREST CITY, Ark. — A Forrest City man turned himself in after a woman and her two small children were killed inside their home late Wednesday evening.

According to Forrest City Police, Cordale Stacey has been charged with three counts of capital murder.

Police confirmed they received a shots fired call around 11:30 p.m. from an apartment on Wolf Street and soon discovered Nashae Williams and her two children dead inside. The children were six and nine years old, respectively.

The suspect’s father identified him to WREG as the victim’s live-in boyfriend. He also said the couple’s 2-year-old daughter was also inside the home, but not hurt.

After the shooting, the suspect reportedly left the home with the little girl in tow, but she was taken to her grandmother’s house once he turned himself in.

This is a developing story.
