-- Police in Washington, D.C., arrested a woman Wednesday in connection with the killing of a lawyer who was found stabbed to death inside a district hotel room.
Police charged Jamyra Gallmon, 21, with first-degree felony murder while armed in connection with the death of David Messerschmitt. His body was found inside a room at the Donovan Hotel on Feb. 10.
Messerschmitt, 30, had sent a text message to his wife the day before his body was discovered, saying he'd be home in an hour, said police. But when the newlywed didn't return to his home in Capitol Hill, his wife, Kim Vuong, filed a missing persons report.
