Authorities in Arkansas on Thursday confirmed that a body found outside the home of a former Republican state lawmaker was hers, and police are investigating her death as a homicide. The Arkansas State Police said the medical examiner confirmed that former state Sen.

Collins, who went by Collins-Smith in the Legislature, was found dead June 4 outside her home in Pocahontas, about 130 miles (210 kilometers) northeast of Little Rock.

A State Police spokesman declined to say where O'Donnell was being held. The Randolph County jail referred questions to the sheriff, who did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Collins served one term in the state House and was originally elected as a Democrat in 2010. But she switched parties and became a Republican in 2011, the year before the GOP won control of both chambers of the Legislature. She was elected to the state Senate in 2014 and was one of the most conservative lawmakers in the majority-GOP chamber. She lost re-election in the Republican primary last year.

Authorities have released few details about Collins' killing and have not said how the former lawmaker was killed. A judge last week granted a request by prosecutors to seal documents and statements obtained by police during the investigation.

Collins' funeral is scheduled for Saturday morning in Pocahontas.
