U.S. Attorney Jane Duke's office named the three as Dana Kuykendall, 55, of Little Rock; Tony Milner, 38, of North Little Rock; and Gene Baker, 60, of Little Rock. Authorities said each pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting in an illegal gambling business. * * * In addition, authorities said, Kuykendall pleaded guilty to one count of money laundering and Milner pleaded guilty to one count of providing a gun to the felon accused of running the gambling operation. The U.S. Attorney’s office said all three were associated with a gambling operation that included George Wylie Thompson, 64, of Cabot. Thompson was indicted Nov. 16, accused of weapons, gambling and bid-rigging violations. * * * He has pleaded not guilty.
