A Pine Bluff business is adding more security after one of its own employees allegedly shot and killed a co-worker at that business.
Chris Hart, Vice President of Personnel and Community Relations said, "To literally, and I hate to use this term, patrol.
Inside Central Moloney these days an off duty Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputy, walking the plant floor in Pine Bluff, making sure employees are safe.
"For our workers it's a security blanket, said Hart, they know that regardless of what happens you have somebody that not only has a badge, but is supposed to have a gun in here."
Last Monday, a gun showed up that wasn't supposed to be on property.
Lillie Foots-Wilson is accused of shooting and killing her co-worker, Latange Long, in the same area where they worked, in front of other employees.
The motive, according to officials, personal issues.
Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney Kyle Hunter said, Foots-Wilson is being held on probable cause for capital murder at the Jefferson County Jail, without bond.
Hunter said, no formal charges have been filed.
In the meantime security cameras are now set up inside Central Moloney, while patrol cars sit at an employee entrance outside.
"Even though something like this happened, and it happened on employee on employee one of those situations where you are not prepared to take care of these guys are letting them know, it's gonna be okay."
Hart said he doesn't know how long sheriff's deputies will patrol.
But the company is looking at getting a new fence and entry system.
