LAKE ARTHUR, La. (AP) - Officials in Jefferson Davis Parish say the body of a missing Lake Arthur woman was found in a shallow grave in East Texas and 1 of her daughters was arrested in the death.

The body of 60-year-old Dorothy Am Hey was found shortly before midnight Saturday, buried in a padlocked box behind a home in San Jacinto County, Texas. Police have not said how she died.

Roseann Duhon Klumpp, 36, was arrested in Cleveland, Texas, late Saturday and later booked into the Jeff Davis Parish Jail, where she was held without bond. She was booked with second-degree murder. Charges against other family members are pending.

Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff Ricky Edwards said Sunday that Hey was reported missing last Wednesday to the Lake Arthur Police Department.
