Rangers asked to investigate custody death

Aug. 13—A 46-year-old Odessa woman died in the Ector County jail on Thursday and the Texas Rangers have been asked to investigate.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, Kreasta Arnold died around 7:30 p.m. Saturday and an autopsy will be performed by the Lubbock County Medical Examiner's Office.

Online court records indicate that on July 22, Ector County District Judge James Rush revoked Arnold's probation in a credit card abuse case after she committed forgery in Ward County. He sentenced her to five concurrent 10 month state jail terms.

Sheriff Mike Griffis said he believes Arnold died as a result of medical issues.
