Little Rock Mayor asks why accused murderer was allowed out on parole

LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - Mayor Mark Stodola is among those asking why the man accused of killing a Fayetteville teen was out on parole despite numerous other felony arrests.

Darell Dennis is accused of killing 18-year-old Forrest Abrams back in May. Dennis was released from prison in 2008 and, since then, has been arrested 14 more times, leading to 21 additional criminal charges.

"I think it's clear that we [have] a system that is not adequately funded and there's not adequate monitoring," said Stodola.

The Department of Community Corrections has not commented on the case.
