The Quinlan-Tawakoni News reports that West Tawakoni councilwoman Laura Bailey Beckett was arrested at 10 a.m. today by the West Tawakoni Police Department on two sealed indictments issued by the Hunt County Grand Jury.

Chief of Police Brandon Kilpatrick said the warrants were in connection with an accident involving death and tampering with physical evidence, the report said.

“The grand jury indictment and warrants issued were in connection with the case that was being investigated into the death of Jackie Blaylock of Quinlan,” Kilpatrick said, according to the report.
