Colorado man in prison for murder offers information in Ark. case

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A Colorado man serving a life sentence for
murdering a teenage girl and claiming responsibility for up to 48
other slayings has offered information in an Arkansas homicide
case. A spokesman for Arkansas state police said today that
authorities have so far been able to corroborate Robert Charles
Browne's detailed claims in seven slayings.
According to El Paso County, Colorado, Sheriff Terry Maketa,
Browne says three of those slayings were in Louisiana, two in
Texas, one in Arkansas and the two in Colorado. The sheriff's
office says that, altogether, Browne is claiming responsibility for
five killings in Arkansas.
Arkansas State Police spokesman Bill Sadler said the information
offered by Browne in the Arkansas case, however, has been less than
specific. Sadler said Arkansas investigators are looking at open
case files to see if there is anything that may match what Browne
has said.
The Gazette of Colorado Springs reported that the Arkansas case
involved Browne meeting a woman at a bar in Memphis, Tennessee, and
agreeing to drive her to West Memphis. The woman's body was
recovered in a river in 1991.
