Blytheville Parent Pleads Guilty to Manslaughter in Infant Death

Written by Press Release

February 12, 2018

BLYTHEVILLE, AR – Johnny Richard, Sr., 30, pleaded guilty today to Manslaughter in Mississippi County Circuit Court. Richard was the parent of a four-month-old infant who died from methamphetamine poisoning in August of 2017. Judge Cindy Thyer sentenced Richard to ten years in the Arkansas Department of Corrections. Richard’s wife, Christina Richard, 32, was also charged with manslaughter in this case, and her next appearance in Circuit Court is March 29.

 Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Gina Knight handled the case for the State of Arkansas. Second Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington said, “A case like this is especially hard due to the age of the victim. I want to thank Deputy Prosecutor Gina Knight for her commitment to justice in this case, and I want to thank Mike Zwerlein of the Blytheville Police Department and Katherine Chlapecka of the Arkansas State Police for their police work in this difficult case.”
