TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) — Honduras police say the great-granddaughter of businesswoman Marjorie Merriweather Post has been slain at her luxury resort.

Roatan police Chief Alex Madrid said Nedenia Post Dye was found stabbed in her room on Dec. 22. He said police had arrested a local singer whom Dye was helping get off drugs.

Madrid said the suspect, Lenin Roberto Arana, told police that he and the 46-year-old heiress were romantically involved. Arana told local reporters that he was innocent.

A resident of Santa Monica, Calif., Dye told the alumni publication of her alma mater, George Washington University, last year that she had inherited a love of risk-taking and adventure from her great-grandmother. Merriweather Post inherited the cereal company that would eventually become General Foods Inc.
