A woman arrested in St. Bernard Parish as an accessory in a 2006 double murder in Tulsa, Okla., has waived an extradition fight and will be transferred for prosecution.

Jacqueline Octavia Smith, 36, was arrested Tuesday afternoon at a residence where she had been living in Violet, in eastern St. Bernard, taken into custody without incident by a U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force. The St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office has a deputy who is a member of the task force.

She waived extradition in a court proceeding in Chalmette on Wednesday and remains in St. Bernard Parish Prison awaiting transfer to Tulsa for prosecution. There was no information on how long Smith had been living on Angelique Drive in Violet, where she was arrested.

Smith was named Monday as an accessory to a Jan. 4. 2006, double slaying in Tulsa in which Linda Louise Wright, 45, and Dorothy Lindley, 60, were stabbed to death in an apartment. Oklahoma authorities said the murders had a “drug-related component.’’

Hilliard A. Fulgham II, 44, currently incarcerated in a prison in Louisville, Miss., and serving a seven-year sentence for a burglary conviction, was charged Monday in Tula with two counts of first-degree murder. Court documents alleged Smith helped Fulgham by concealing evidence and securing his transportation and flight out of Oklahoma, media outlets in Tulsa reported.
