Police have one woman in custody in connection with the killing of 42-year-old D.C. middle school principal Brian Betts.

UPDATE: Two more suspects, including Williams' son, have been arrested.

WASHINGTON (AP) Police have arrested a woman they say was caught on video using a D.C. middle school principal's credit cards a day after he was found dead in his Silver Spring home. Her son was also arrested.

Montgomery County Police say 46-year-old Artura Otey Williams was arrested Monday in Washington, D.C., and is awaiting extradition.

Police say surveillance video from a Silver Spring grocery on April 16 shows Williams using a credit card stolen from Brian Betts' home. Betts, the principal at Shaw at Garnet-Patterson Middle School, was found dead in his home a day earlier.

Williams is charged with two counts of knowingly receiving a stolen credit card with the intent to use it, attempted theft less than $1,000 in value and attempted fraudulent credit card use.

County police say more arrests are expected.
