WASHINGTON (AP) – A second woman has been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of an attorney at an upscale D.C. hotel.

The Metropolitan Police Department said officers arrested 19-year-old Dominique Johnson of southeast Washington on Wednesday. She’s charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.

A department spokesman declined to say whether Johnson is accused of being at the scene of the killing.

Last week, 21-year-old Jamyra Gallmon was charged with first-degree murder in the death of 30-year-old David Messerschmitt.

A court document says Gallmon told police she went to the Donovan hotel to rob Messerschmitt but stabbed him after he grabbed her arm and they started fighting.

The document says an investigation found Messerschmitt posted on Craigslist soliciting responses from other men and communicated with an account linked to Gallmon.
