The Kalamazoo Gazette reports Calhoun County District Court records show an arrest warrant was issued Thursday for the 46-year-old daughter on charges of concealing a death and failing to report the discovery of a body.

The body of Phyllis Lutz of Leroy Township was found in January wrapped in blankets in a 4- to 5-foot-deep hole in an area used as a burn pit. She had last been seen in September. The daughter lived with her.

Leroy Township is in Calhoun County, southeast of Grand Rapids.
