A friend of the man accused of killing a Wenatchee beauty school student has been arrested and accused of criminal assistance.
The Mackenzie Cowell Homicide Task Force says 22-year-old Tessa M. Schuyleman was arrested Wednesday night in Tumwater and jailed in Chelan County.
The task force says it found photos and video of Schuyleman and a bloodstained carpet that indicated she knew about the killing and helped Chris Wilson.
The 29-year-old Wilson was arrested in October and has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge.

He attended the Wenatchee beauty school with Cowell. Investigators say he killed her at his Wenatchee apartment in February of 2009 and left her body along the Columbia River at Crescent Bar.
