LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Nearly four months after a woman’s body was found inside a Spencer County home, police have arrested two people in connection with the case.

Cincinnati natives 22-year-old Kimberly Walton and 39-year-old Edet Wettee are facing murder charges.

The arrests are related to a Taylorsville death investigation after the remains of 35-year-old Christiana Walker were found following a May 29 house fire on Chatman Road.

Police have not disclosed the manner in which Walker died or how the fire was started.
