Sabrina Holloway, 40, is charged with tampering with evidence and permitting drug abuse.
Holloway was a friend of the victim, 44-year-old Summerhill Mack, also of Bellaire.
Mack allegedly had borrowed $50 from Holloway and went to Wheeling, and then returned to her dog grooming business in Bellaire.
Later that day, Holloway found Mack’s body in the back room of the grooming business.
Holloway’s charges are subject to change, says Prosecutor Dan Fry, depending on lab reports and the autopsy.
