Realtor's family, friends in shock over loss


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Those close to Beverly Carter sat in silence today at a press conference held by Pulaski County Sheriff's Office. Investigators discussed limited details of the missing real estate agent's death. Most of her friends and family members are still in shock.

"On a personal note, Beverly and I have been friends for 11 years now," said friend David Goldstein. "And there are no words for me to tell you how much she's going to be missed."

Volunteers and police searched for Carter for days until her body was found early Tuesday morning.

David Goldstein has been a friend of Carter's for years. With the shocking news of her death not even a day old, Goldstein, fellow co-workers and friends were too broken up to speak.

More protesting on Tuesday for disabled rights


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - More demonstrations were held on Tuesday after protesters bombarded the Arkansas Health Care Association Headquarters.

On Monday, dozens gathered with a disability rights group refusing to give up the fight for their rights.

The group wants the ability to choose their support instead of being forced into nursing facilities and institutions.

Little Rock police were called to U.S. Representative Mike Ross' office on Tuesday afternoon and have made more arrests for disorderly conduct for people refusing to get out of the street.

UAMS Fertility Center gives new hope to Arkansans

UAMS Fertility Center gives new hope to Arkansans


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Infertility issues can be devastating for couples hoping to start a family, but there's new hope in Central Arkansas now that UAMS has reinvented its women's health center.

"I think there is a lot of misconception about fertility that if you go to a fertility doctor, you're going to have 8 or 10 babies or something," said 32-year-old Shanna McKeller. "But that's not necessarily the case."

All Shanna McKeller and her husband Jason ever wanted was one baby.

"After three years of trying, we finally got pregnant and we lost that baby," McKeller said.

Two years and two miscarriages later, the couple went from doctor to doctor, looking for a solution.

"A lot of doctors don't give you answers so we just wanted answers as to what we needed to do," she said.
