Man Accused of Shooting Ex-Girlfriend and Killing His Ex’s Friend Pleads Not Guilty


The man accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend and killing her friend in Fayetteville says he’s innocent.

Dekota Harvey, 22, was charged with capital murder and attempted capital murder in Washington County Circuit Court Wednesday. He pleaded not guilty to both charges.

Police said Harvey shot both women earlier this month following an argument.

A report states he shot his ex-girlfriend in the leg and her friend in the chest, killing her.  

Harvey surrendered to police and SWAT Team officers after an hours-long manhunt and a three-hour standoff at a Springdale apartment complex.
