Woman arrested in death of Mountain Home man

MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. (AP) - Baxter County authorities say they've arrested a woman for the death of a Mountain Home man.

Sheriff John Montgomery said in a news release that the woman was arrested Tuesday after taking the body of 24-year-old Raul Segura Turrieta to a home just east of Mountain Home about 5:50 a.m. and telling the person at the home that she may have killed someone. Montgomery says the body was found in the trunk of the car the woman had been driving.

Montgomery says investigators are still trying to determine the location of the slaying and a motive. He says the body was sent to the state medical examiner for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

He says the woman is due in court for a formal hearing on Thursday.
