COOLIDGE, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a woman has been arrested in connection with a homicide near Picacho last weekend.
Pinal County Sheriff's officials say deputies responded to reports of a fight and possible hit-and-run Saturday night about 15 miles north of Picacho.
They say 53-year-old Peggy O'Neil was pronounced dead at the scene and 33-year-old Chanda Eckert was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder.
Authorities say the killing doesn't appear to be random as they believe the victim knew the suspect.
It's unclear if Eckert has a lawyer for her case yet.
