Updated:

YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - A 24-year-old Yuma woman is accused of first-degree murder in the killing of a woman whose dead body was recently found in a citrus grove.

Yuma police arrested Brandi Michalski Tuesday in the killing of 29-year-old Christal Figueroa of Wellton. According to police, the two were friends until recently.

Sgt. Leanne Worthen says police are still seeking three men for questioning in the case.

The three include 30-year-old Jose Jimenez, who is named in a Yuma County warrant alleging aggravated assault and unlawful flight in another case.

Police say Michalski was 1 of several people who were involved in a March hit & run accident after which weapons were found dumped in the area.
