Arkansas boy, 19, murders mother while father helps him cover it up; voicemail conversation exposed duo
Carson Gregory Glover, 19, and his 55-year-old father, William Gregory Glover, spent Christmas at the Pulaski County Jail after investigators found their connection to 54-year-old Sonya Glover's death.
SHERWOOD, ARKANSAS: A 19-year-old boy has allegedly killed his mother while his father has been accused of staging a coverup. According to Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, teen Carson Gregory Glover and his 55-year-old father William Gregory Glover, spent Christmas at the Pulaski County Jail after investigators found their connection to 54-year-old Sonya Glover's death.
Carson has been charged with capital murder while William has been charged with hindering apprehension for allegedly trying to cover up his son's actions. The son also faces an additional count of theft of property.
The woman was found on a bloody couch in her West Woodruff Avenue home on Saturday, December 23. Her cause of death has not been reported and investigators are yet to dig out the motive behind the murder.
During the initial stages of the investigation, William had told the investigators that he had found Sonya dead on the couch and that he had no idea what had happened. However, a voicemail from him to his son said other things. The piece of evidence was supplied by a family member, on which, the father is apparently heard asking him about the killing.
"You killed her, you b*******!" he is heard telling his son. Later in the voicemail, he is heard asking Carson, "Where's the murder weapon?"
The couple that had been married for more than three decades had been together since William was 20 and Sonya was 19. According to social media, they have four children and two grandchildren and Sonya seemed to be loved. Carson appears to be the youngest.
A friend has also set up a GoFundMe for the family. "She will forever be missed by so many. She touched many countless lives with her loving spirit and contagious smile," the friend said.
As of Wednesday, the accused father-son duo were being held without bail.
