- An Arkansas woman was charged Monday with capital murder in the killing of a former state senator whose body was found outside her own home. The judge did not set bond for O’Donnell, who was arrested Friday in former Sen. Linda Collins’ death. The day after her body was found, a judge granted prosecutors’ request to seal all documents and statements obtained by police during the investigation. A former Collins spokesman said O’Donnell was friends with Collins, and court records show that O’Donnell was a witness in the former lawmaker’s divorce proceedings. Collins divorced retired Circuit Judge Philip Smith last year and the two were in the middle of a court fight over their properties.
