Arkansas police identified the suspect as 48-year-old Rebecca Lynn O & #; Donnell from Pocahontas, Ark. Only a few more details have been released and a judge has received a court order to seal the documents in the case. A police spokesman declined to tell 5 News Online where O'Donnell is being held.

Ken Yang, a former spokesman for Collins-Smith, said she and O'Donnell were friends and O'Donnell had worked on their campaign in the past.

Collins-Smith, 57, served as a Democrat for a term in the State House before changing sides in 2011. She won the 2014 election to the US Senate as a Republican. She lost reelection at the GOP elementary school last year.

Following O'Donnell's arrest, Collins-Smith's family issued a statement thanking law enforcement officials and shocking the news.

"We are sick and upset that someone so close to Linda is involved in such a horrible, heartless crime," the statement said. "We want to thank everyone for the continued prayers and thoughts for our family in this difficult time."
