        The wikis for Clemmons and DuMond give decent full  summaries.

        Maurice Clemmons killed 4 police officers in Parkland, Washington, after being paroled in Arkansas. He was eligible for parole due to Huckabee's reduction of 108 years' worth of sentences to 47 years. He had recently posted bond on charges of child rape and assaulting a police officer at the time of the Washington killings.

        Wayne DuMond was pardoned for a rape conviction. When he re-offended, he also murdered the victim. Charges for a second post-release rape/murder were being prepared when he died in prison.  

        Huckabee's wiki indicates that he also granted clemency to a 4-time DUI loser who was a major donor to the Arkansas Republican Party. This one managed not to kill anyone when he re-offended, but he had a near miss with a law enforcement vehicle.
