Arrest made in death of De Queen woman

De QUEEN, Ark. (AP) - Three people have been arrested in the death of a De Queen woman who was found unresponsive in her car after a party.

De Queen Police Chief Richard McKinley says 29-year-old Amy Higgins was found dead in the passenger seat of her car on Dec. 18. McKinley tells the Texarkana Gazette (http://is.gd/bHTtib ) that Higgins had been at a party with her husband and friends and that she reportedly refused to get out of the car and go into the house.

Police say Higgins' husband, Jared Higgins, was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and introducing a controlled substance into the body of another. Two friends of the couple were arrested on suspicion of introducing a controlled substance into the body of another.

Authorities did not know if they three had attorneys.
