OAKLAND PARK (CBSMiami) -- Police have made an arrest three days after a 64-year-old woman was found murdered inside her home.

Broward Sheriff's Office homicide detectives placed the victim's neighbor, Debra Kincy, 63, in custody Saturday. She's accused of killing Charlotte Nicholas, 64, stabbing her multiple times in the head, neck and torso using several weapons.

According to investigators, the women allegedly had an ongoing feud that may have originated over stolen jewelry. Police say Kincy pawned three of the victim's rings on the day of the murder and was wearing the same clothes that BSO would later take into evidence soaked in Nicholas' blood.

The day after the murder, Kincy gave several interviews with the media in which she provided details about the crime that police had not made public.

Kincy faces several charges including murder and dealing in stolen property.
