Police now say that Ligia "Gia" Collins, a Burlington mother, was murdered by her friend during a drug deal.

Investigators said Ellen Ducharme, who was Collins' friend, beat her to death with a baseball bat last month. They say Ducharme's boyfriend -- Moses Robar -- dumped Collins' body in rural Vermont where police discovered it almost two weeks ago.
