Tribal officials say arrests have been made in the death of a woman found in western Arizona earlier this year.

The body of Cynthia Williams was found in an irrigation canal in Poston , about 15 miles from Parker, on March 9. Family members previously told ABC15 she was bound and had been severely beaten.

Poston is part of the Colorado River Indian Tribes Reservation, which includes land on both sides of the Colorado River along the Arizona-California state line. The tribe's police department and the Federal Bureau have been investigating the case.

In a release sent Friday, authorities said two suspects were arrested in connection with Williams' death. Both are residents in Parker and are not members of the Colorado River Indian Tribes.

No other information was immediately available.
