Correction: Little Rock-Triple Homicide-Gag Order story

April 4, 2019

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — In an April 30, 2018, story about the death of a mother and her two children, The Associated Press misspelled one of the children’s names. Her name was A’Layliah Fisher, not Alayah Fisher.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Gag order issued in Little Rock triple homicide case

A gag order has been issued in a triple-homicide case in Little Rock in which two children and their mother were killed

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A gag order has been issued in a triple-homicide case in Little Rock in which two children and their mother were killed.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that a Pulaski County Circuit Court judge last week issued the order prohibiting law enforcement and attorneys from discussing the case against 25-year-old Michael Ivory Collins and 21-year-old William Alexander.

The two remain in the Pulaski County jail without bond. Court records do not show that either man has entered a plea.

Both face three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 24-year-old Mariah Cunningham, 5-year-old A’Layliah Fisher and 3-year-old Elijah Fisher.

The three were found dead Dec 5 in southwest Little Rock. Police have not said how they were killed, but have said Collins and Alexander are brothers and that Collins knew Cunningham.
