A former talent agent who allegedly worked with Gwen Stefani has been accused of murdering her own stepfather.
Haena Worthing, 44, and two other suspects have been accused of killing William Webb, whose burnt body was found in Joshua Tree, California, on August 16.
Worthing, the victim's stepdaughter, represented No Doubt star Stefani when she worked at the United Talent Agency from 2000 to 2013.
Neighbors have said that Worthing's mother had a dispute with Webb about the sale of the $ 2.6 million home in Marina Del Rey.

Webb, who was & # 39; 70 in his 70s, was reported missing by his son on August 12, police said.
The two other suspects arrested in the case, 38-year-old John Schiefer and 40-year-old Shavonne Webster, killed Webb with a hammer before setting fire to his body in a dry bed of the lake in San Bernardino County.
The probable involvement of Worthing in the murder has not been released by investigators.
All three suspects are being held on bail of $ 2 million.
If they are convicted, Schiefer and Webster are 26 years in prison and Worthing 25 years in prison.
Neighbors who know Webb since he moved home in 1998 have expressed a shock about his horrific death.
& # 39; It's incredible, & # 39; said Eileen Nugent ABC7. & # 39; Especially to burn a body and dump it in the desert. I just can't imagine anyone doing something like that. & # 39;
Worthing is said to have recently moved into the house and neighbors remembered that she had heard her arguing loudly with her stepdaughter.
Nugent said that the family's house had been screened several times in the last few years and was recently sold.
& # 39; His wife didn't want to sell it, but he did, & # 39; she said about Webb.
Another neighbor claimed that the woman still lives in the house.

During her time at United Talent Agency, Worthing represented Stefani & # 39; s licenses and branding for her L.A.M.B model line, according to TooFab.
Reportedly, she also organized star-studded launch parties at the singer's home.
Insiders told the news site that Worthing developed a drug problem at UTA, which may have contributed to her departure after 13 years at the agency.
