Editor’s Note 8/4/21 : This is not a plea deal. Instead of being released back into the community, a judge has allowed Anglin to be transferred to a rehabilitation facility instead when he posts bail. He is still a suspect in this case therefore is awaiting court date to determine whether he is innocent or guilty for the alleged crime.
EL DORADO, Ark. (KTVE/KARD) 8/2/21 — A man arrested for his alleged involvement in a woman’s death will be released from custody and transported into a drug rehab program.
According to court documents, Tyler Anglin will be released to the Union Rescue Mission Nehemiah House once a bed becomes available. The program is a non-month inpatient program.
Anglin was charged with two counts of manslaughter and one count of tampering with evidence in the death of Brooklin Hinkle.
William James Jr., of the James Law Firm in Little Rock, is the attorney representing Anglin.
James filed a motion on July 27 for the court to modify Anglin’s bond so that he could be released to the rehab program in Little Rock.
Bond was set at $50,000 cash or secured during Anglin’s first court appearance last week.
Special Prosecuting Attorney Jack McQuary, who was assigned to the case, agreed and approved the motion on July 29.
The conditions of Anglin’s release include:
- Posts bail in the amount of $50,000 cash or surety
- Must not be in possession of drugs or alcohol
- Must not be in possession of firearms
- Remain in weekly contact with Defense counsel
- Must be transported to and from the Union Rescue Mission Nehemiah House by a Certified Law Enforcement Agency
- The rehab facility must immediately notify the Union County Sheriff’s Office if Anglin leaves the facility for any reason without completing the program. An arrest warrant will be immediately issued.
- The rehab facility must provide weekly status reports on the Anglin’s progress to the Court, Defense Counsel and Special Prosecuting Attorney.
- Anglin will toll speedy trial for the duration of the rehabilitation program.
According to investigators, Hinkle’s official autopsy hasn’t been released by the Arkansas State Crime Lab.
Man facing manslaughter charges after Hampton woman found dead inside her vehicle
EL DORADO, Ark. (KTVE/KARD) 7/26/21 — An El Dorado man is facing multiple charges in connection to a Hampton woman’s death.
According to the El Dorado Police Department, officers were called to the parking lot at Home Depot on Friday around 11:30 a.m.
When they arrived, they found Brooklin Hinkle unresponsive in the passenger seat of her car.
During the investigation, officers were able to quickly connect Tyler Anglin, 33, as a person of interest connected to Hinkle’s death.
According to investigators, Anglin allegedly drove Hinkle to the Home Depot around 11 a.m., dropped her off there and left the scene on foot before calling dispatch a short time after.
There were no signs of visible injuries. Her body was sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an official autoposy.
Anglin is facing two counts of manslaughter and tampering with evidence. Police say Anglin didn’t seek out medical attention for Hinkle.
Investigators believe Hinkle, who is five months pregnant, may have have been deceased before she was taken to Home Depot though they are still investigating the exact time of death.
She was expecting to deliver a baby boy in December, according to investigators. Police say Hinkle and Anglin knew each other and had been together the morning that the incident occured.
A special prosecutor and public defender out of Little Rock will handle the case as Anglin is related to Prosecuting Attorney Jeffrey Rogers.
Anglin appeared before a judge Monday afternoon for his first appearance court hearing. According to Union County Sheriff’s Office website, bond was set at $50,000.
