LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Authorities on Friday night said they’ve arrested an Arkansas woman in connection with the killing of a former state senator who was found dead outside her own home.

Arkansas State Police said they and Randolph County sheriff’s deputies arrested 48-year-old Rebecca Lynn O’Donnell in connection with the death of former state Sen. Linda Collins.

Police said criminal charges were pending and did not say whether they were seeking any other suspects in Collins’ death.

Collins, 57, who went by Collins-Smith in the Legislature, was found dead June 4 outside her home in Pocahontas, about 130 miles (210 kilometers) northeast of Little Rock.

A State Police spokesman declined to say where O’Donnell was being held. The Randolph County jail referred questions to the sheriff, who did not immediately return a call seeking comment. State Police said it did not know when O’Donnell would appear in court.
