A 20-year-old woman accused in the burning death of a Canton woman changed her plea to guilty.

Katrina Marie Culberson, 20, of Canton pleaded guilty on Tuesday, Sept. 25 to aggravated murder, kidnapping and aggravated arson in connection with the death of Celeste Fronsman, 29, in August.

Culberson was arrested in Canton in late August. Two other people, Monica Washington and LaFonse Dixon, have pleaded not guilty in connection with Fronsman's death.

A Good Samaritan found Fronsman on Sunday, Aug. 26 in Muskingum County on 208 near Zanesville. She was naked with a rope around her neck and with fourth-degree burns all over her body.

Fronsman died at 2:22 p.m. Tuesday,  Aug. 28 at Columbus University Hospital.

"This was a very gruesome thing. I can't imagine the pain this lady went through," said Sheriff Matthew Lutz.
