LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) -

The estranged wife of a murder suspect has been arrested in connection to the case, according to Little Rock television station KTHV.

According to the news outlet, Crystal Hope Lowery, 41, of Jacksonville was arrested by the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office. Lowery is charged with capital murder and kidnapping of Beverly Carter.

Carter was found dead in late September in a shallow grave after she had been reported missing after showing a home in Scott, Arkansas.

Arron Michael Lewis, 33, was charged with capital murder in Carter's case.

According to KTHV, court documents suggest Lowery is the estranged wife of Lewis. She reportedly filed for divorce Oct. 17, 2014 and has been separated since August.

Carter's body was found 20 miles away from the home in Scott inside a shallow grave in Cabot.
