Tiffany Nicole Burney, 23, was expected to face murder charges in the death of Daisy Mae Hayes.
Hayes was found dead the night of Dec. 14 in the living room of her Gabacho Drive home after relatives were unable to reach her and went to the residence to check on her welfare.
Police said Hayes' home showed no signs of forced entry or a life-and-death struggle.
