Chicot Memorial

DREW COUNTY, AR (Ben Caxton) — An Arkansas state Medical Examiner has determined that a Drew County man died of complications from blunt force trauma, ruling his death a homicide. According to police, 67-year-old George Flowers was attacked when he opened the door to his home on July 18th to 38-year-old Jeremy Huskey. Huskey struck Flowers in the face several times and after Flowers fell to the floor, Huskey kicked him repeatedly, then left. All that according to Drew County Deputy Brandon Marc Wright in a Drew County Sheriff’s Department incident report. Husky was eventually was arrested on assault charges on July 24 and later released on $10,000 bond. Flowers initially refused medical treatment. But he was found unresponsive in his home two days later and taken by ambulance to a hospital in Little Rock suffering from what appeared to be severe head trauma. Flowers died on August 12th. Huskey’s charges have now been upgraded from assault to aggravated residential burglary, second-degree murder, and evidence tampering in connection with Flowers’ death. Because he is charged as a habitual offender, Huskey faces enhanced penalties if he is convicted of murdering the 67-year-old man.
