Mother, daughter accused in fire death

New Orleans police accuse a 53-year-old woman and her daughter of plotting to burn a 57-year-old woman to death.

Police say they arrested Alice Wright last week on a charge of second-degree murder, and have a warrant to arrest 23-year-old Tytesha Wright once she is out of a burn unit in Baton Rouge.

They're accused in the death of Cynthia Houston, who died in her home Aug. 3 from fourth-degree burns and smoke inhalation.

Police say Tytesha Wright helped care for Houston, who had medical problems.
