Mental Exam For Murder Suspect

Robert Lee Smith, Jr.

Faulkner County Circuit Judge Troy Braswell agreed Tuesday to a defense request for a mental evaluation in the case of a 16-year-old boy charged in the death of a Wooster woman.

Robert Smith III, of Pine Bluff, is charged as an adult with capital murder, kidnapping, aggravated robbery and theft of property in the July slaying of 72-year old Elvia Fragstein.

Smith and his cousin, 18-year old Tacori Mackrel, also of Pine Bluff, have pleaded innocent, and both are being held without bail.
