OBERLIN, LA (KPLC) -

Authorities on Thursday arrested a woman in connection with the stabbing death of an Oberlin man.

Fred Green, 59, was found dead inside his burning mobile home Monday morning. Authorities said Green died of multiple stab wounds.

Allen Parish Sheriff Doug Hebert said Ebony Ackless, 31, was arrested Thursday afternoon and charged with second-degree murder.

Hebert said Ackless, also of Oberlin, admitted to the crime and the early investigation indicates it may have been a drug deal that went bad.

No bond was set.

Hebert said a passerby noticed smoke coming from Green's mobile home and went inside to check on him. Hebert said that passerby, who knew Green, found him unresponsive in a bedroom.
