NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – North Little Rock police said they arrested a suspect connected to a deadly November crash Wednesday, adding that the case was now being considered a homicide.
In an overnight release, North Little Rock Police Department officials said 25-year-old Roseikeo Wright was arrested on an outstanding warrant for the crash, which killed 31-year- old Kneco Jones.
Detectives noted that they also arrested a second person, 39-year-old Tiffany Mitchell-Swann of North Little Rock, in connection with the investigation.
On November 5, police responded to the 2000 block of Allen where they found the body of a man, later identified as Jones, on the ground near the roadway.

Mitchell-Swann is also being held in the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility without bond. Authorities said she faces charges of tampering with physical evidence and hindering apprehension or prosecution.
