Here is what I found:

Staggs,J.H., "Local News" 05 Apr 1878, p.1, col.3; A.J. Hamilton shot-former witness against Staggs

Then I found in the Hamilton surname Genealogy Forum:

Notes for Andrew Jackson Hamilton, Jr:
1. From the "Evening Shade" Izard County, AR, Friday, April 5, 1878:

"It is rumored that A.J. Hamilton, of Izard County, was waylaid and shot one day this week by parties unknown, near Lunenburg, and it's believed from the appearance of the place where the assassins were in ambush that one of the attacking party was also killed - several shots having been exchanged by the parties previous to the one which proved fatal to Hamilton. It will be remembered that Hamilton and John Hare were the principal witnesses in the J.H. Staggs murder case which was tried there something over a year ago and Hare and Hamilton being together at the time of the above assault, it is thought that Staggs, who has escaped from the penitentiary, was with the assaulting party."

Hope this helped.
