ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio sheriff has announced two additional arrests in the gruesome death of a woman found covered in burns and wailing in agony on the side of a rural road.
A driver found 29-year-old Celeste Fronsman on Aug. 26 on a road northeast of Zanesville.
She had been raped and burned and had a strap around her neck. She died two days later at a Columbus hospital.
Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz said Tuesday that 24-year-old Monica Jean Washington was arrested Monday and 33-year-old LaFonse Darney Dixon was arrested Tuesday.
Lutz says each was charged with aggravated murder, kidnapping and aggravated arson.
It's unclear whether Dixon or Washington yet have attorneys.
Last week, a 20-year-old Canton woman was arrested on those same charges in Fronsman's death.
