A Neosho, Missouri woman is arrested for the 1999 murder of her step-mother.

Tracy Lynn Rea, also known as Tracy Lynn Austin, was arrested this morning in Newton County for the death of Carla Austin.

In August 1999, Carla Austin went missing from Butler County, Missouri and her body was found that November.

Carla Austin's grave was exhumed last month.

In addition to today's arrest in Neosho, authorities in southeastern Missouri arrested John Austin, a relative of the victim's husband, and Henry Rice, a family friend.

A fourth suspect, Melissa Baggett, has also been arrested in southeastern Missouri.  She was also Carla Austin's step-daughter.

All four suspects have been charged with second degree murder.
