Conway Man Pleaded Guilty To The Murder Of His Stepdad

The suspect has been sentenced to 20 years in prison and he will not be granted parole or an early release.

Two years after an incident, a Conway man has pleaded guilty to the murder of a retired police officer.

24-year-old, Eric Faulk, pleaded to voluntary manslaughter for the 2020 fatal shooting of his stepdad, James Cochran who retired from the police force after serving 38 years.

The murder was not connected to his former job, but an act of domestic violence.

In March 2020 Faulk’s mother reported that she believed her son had “done something” to his stepfather.

The police arrived and discovered Cochran’s body in the shed behind the home.

Faulk fled the scene in the victims vehicle. He and the truck were found in separate locations.

Faulk has been sentenced to 20 years in prison and he will not be granted parole or an early release.
