At the time, Kinsey was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead, officials said.

Her body was transported to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory for an autopsy to be conducted to determine the manner and cause of her death, authorities said.

Officials said Tait and Kinsey were traveling from Mississippi and, after examining the scene, they found evidence of a physical altercation that happened inside the vehicle.

Police interviewed Tait during the evening of Oct. 11 and after consulting with Thomas Deen, 10th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney, Tait was arrested.

Tait was booked into the Chicot County Jail and was charged with first-degree murder, police said.
