EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - Police in Washington say a homeless woman planned the fatal beating of a man in her homeless camp.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1OeimnZ ) that the 49-year-old woman was arrested Friday and is being held on $1 million bail.

Prosecutors say she got her 46-year-old boyfriend to confront 54-year-old David Alan Webster. Webster’s body was found stuffed into a sleeping bag in a swampy area near Interstate 5 in April. The boyfriend is accused of beating and robbing Webster.

Everett police believe the woman approached two people at different times to rob Webster, but the first one refused. Detectives think the woman kept watch while her boyfriend killed Webster and told him what to do with the body.
