Authorities have charged a Florida Panhandle woman in the death of her mother, whose body was found on an isolated beach.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office arrested Sandra Anne Loudermilk-Conkel on Saturday on a charge of first-degree murder. She was being held Monday without bond. Jail records did not show whether she had an attorney.

Loudermilk-Conkel's mother was found dead Wednesday on a beach about 10 miles west of Apalachicola. The cause of death has not been released. Autopsy results are pending.

Undersheriff Joel Norred tells The News Herald that investigators believe Loudermilk-Conkel acted alone.
