A new suspect is under arrest for the killing of a woman, whose decomposing body was found last year.

This comes after a Hinds County Grand Jury didn't indict another person who was originally charged with her murder. 

It's in connection with the killing of Felicia Spann. Her body was found on Westhaven Blvd. last August.

34-year-old Haneefah Muhammad is being called the woman who pulled the trigger, killing Spann with a shot to the head.

Family of the 41-year-old victim met at the Hinds County Courthouse Tuesday morning. They say they have no idea what the connection is between the two women.

Police say they will release their evidence and a motive at a later time.

Authorities found Spann's body on a property on Westhaven Boulevard almost a year ago, wrapped in plastic.

48-year-old Michael Buck was originally charged with murder, but never indicted.

However, Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith says it is possible that he may among others be charged for their involvement in the crime.
