A California woman was arrested on murder and child abuse charges after police said they found a body in her backyard.
Beant Kaur Dhillon, 43, was arrested Tuesday on charges of murder and willful cruelty to a child, KGET-TV reported. The arrest came after police reportedly unearthed a body in the backyard of the Bakersfield house Dhillon owns.
A county website listed Dhillon as the owner of the house in question, according to the news station.
Detectives on the scene wouldn’t comment on the investigation to KGET-TV, but pictures taken by neighbors show investigators digging in a planter behind the house.
Dhillon declined requests for comment from KGET-TV.
