Springdale Man Found Guilty in 2015 Double Homicide


(via KSN) A jury handed down a guilty verdict in a 2015 double homicide case involving a Springdale man.

After roughly four hours of deliberation, jurors decided Christopher Paschall was guilty of two counts of first degree murder, three counts of armed criminal action and a single count of parental kidnapping.

The jury began deliberation around 12:30 Thursday afternoon.

Barry County officials say Paschall drove to a home in Washburn in January of 2015 and shot his 29-year-old estranged girlfriend Casie Brace, killing her.

He also shot her grandfather, 76-year-old Herbert Townsend who later died.

Paschall took his 2-year-old daughter from the home to his father’s house in Springdale, Arkansas where he was later arrested.

The trial was moved to newton county on a change of venue.

He will be sentenced on December 19.
