From February 2014:

A federal grand jury issued the indictment against Bolton, charing him with one count of kidnapping resulting in death. The statutory penalty for that offense is life imprisonment or death...

Earlier this month:
A Gurdon man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole in a 2013 kidnapping death.
Kevin Bolton, 39, formerly of Spartanburg, South Carolina, was sentenced Thursday in United States District Court in Hot Springs, said a news release issued by Kenneth Elser, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas.
Back in June, he pleaded guilty in the death of Cassie Carter.
