Mom accused of hiding son suspected in killing of Whitewater man

LITTLE ROCK (WKOW) — The mother of the suspect in the killing of a Whitewater man May 8 in Conway, Arkansas, is now accused of helping her son hide from police.

Leonel Panduro, 38, of Whitewater was found shot to death at a Days Inn in Conway, a city north of Little Rock.

Sherri Keesee, 50, of Maumelle, was charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution, a felony, according to KATV-TV. Police said she’s the mother of Zachary Keesee, who is suspected of killing Panduro.

Police said Zachary Keesee, 24, is wanted on a charge of capital murder.
