DALLAS (KRLD) - A man has been arrested after Dallas County sheriffs found a body on fire in southeast Dallas. 

A call of suspicious activity came in around 7:30 at night on Sunday in a remote area near Belt Line Road and Post Oak Road east of Wilmer. The caller told officials something was on fire, and when that person got closer to the flames, he or she discovered it was a body that was burning. 

The body was later identified as 52-year-old Tammy Cullins. 

Tuesday deputies spoke to Cullins' husband Gerald Troup, and after the interview arrested him charging him with murder. 

No bond has been set and at this point a motive has yet to be determined.
