PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities have arrested a Scottsdale woman in connection with the death of her elderly husband, whose body was found in northern Arizona last month.

Coconino County Sheriff’s officials said Friday that 70-year-old Marie Carmen Rudd was arrested this week on suspicion of second-degree murder. Investigators did not say what led her to be a suspect.

The sheriff’s office responded May 20 to a report of a body lying along a road west of Forest Lakes. The body of 94-year-old William Max Rudd was found with severe trauma and no identification.

His death was determined to be a homicide.

Marie Rudd is currently being held in Maricopa County jail on $500,000 cash bond.

It was not immediately known if she had an attorney who could speak on her behalf.
