SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane woman has been arrested on murder charges nearly one month after the body of a 25-year-old Tonasket woman was found in a driveway along Stalder Road. Spokane police arrested Tansy Fae Mathis, 29, sometime after midnight Thursday for the murder of Michelle Kitterman. Police are still looking for another suspect in the murder.

Kitterman's body was discovered March 1, 2009, in the driveway along Stadler Road. Results of an autopsy show Kitterman, who was pregnant at the time, had been beaten and was stabbed several times. After being attacked Kitterman attempted to make it up the driveway but died on the scene from her wounds. Police say many of the stab wounds were to her stomach area.

Police did find the vehicle apparently used in the murder, which is now in the hands of the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab.

The second suspect police are searching for is Brent Phillips, 38, of Spokane. Phillips is described as a white male, 5' 11"  tall and weighs between 200 and 220 pounds and has brown hair. Phillips also uses the nickname of "Hollywood". If you know where Phillips is, you are asked to call police.

Mathis is currently being transported back to Okanogan by Okanogan County Deputies where she will be booked for First Degree Murder.
