Original Story:

Second arrest made in murder of Italian tourist, Carlo Marigliano.

Police say one man has been arrested and they are looking for another person in connection with the murder of an Italian man who was shot one week ago in Little Rock.

Andre Jackson, 32, of Little Rock, was arrested and charged with capital murder in the homicide of Carlo Marigliano, 31.

Police tell Channel 7 News they are also looking for Charina Fort, 31, of Little Rock, on a capital murder charge in connection with the homicide. Fort is a black female, approximately 5 feet tall and 140 pounds. They say she could be in a maroon 1997 Toyota Avalon with Arkansas license plate 965 ONZ.

Fort should be considered armed and dangerous.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Charina Fort or come into contact with her, you're asked to call 911 immediately.

Police say Marigliano was shot while driving a rental car Friday, July 28 on North Shackleford Road and then crashed his vehicle into the side of an apartment building. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to the victim's family, Marigliano was visiting Little Rock from Italy and spoke limited English and was traveling with an Italian tour group when he decided to break away and explore the city alone.

Marigliano's cousin, Gianni Sulmonte, told KATV he was impressed how quickly LRPD was able to make an arrest in the case, but said the family had always felt confident in their abilities to solve the case.

"I think they probably had some sense of what might have been, days before they even arrested this guy and were just trying to put it together so that the arrest will turn into a conviction," said Sulmonte.

Sulmonte said the news of Friday's arrest marks the beginning of the healing process for the family.
