The Arkansas State Police will take point in the investigation into the shooting death of Donald Hux Sunday evening following a standoff with Union County deputies after Hux reportedly kidnapped and then killed his ex-wife.
ASP spokesperson Bill Sadler said this morning the criminal investigations division will look into whether the situation necessitated the “use of force” that led to Hux’s death.
The News-Times is currently waiting on a release of the sequence of events that led to the two deaths on Parnell Road last night. However, Union County Sheriff Mike McGough just confirmed that Hux first shot Huckabee before deputies shot him.
Prior to the standoff, Hux was also wanted in connection with an attack that resulted in the death of Sandy Carl Huckabee, Amy Huckabee’s new husband, earlier in the day.
