WASHINGTON (AP) - A woman who pleaded guilty in connection with the stabbing death of an attorney at a Washington hotel has been sentenced to 24 years in prison.

Jamyra Gallmon was sentenced Friday in the death of David Messerschmitt.

Court documents show Gallmon told police she went to the Donovan hotel Feb. 9 to rob Messerschmitt but stabbed him after they started fighting. An investigation found Messerschmitt posted on Craigslist soliciting responses from other men and communicated with an account linked to Gallmon.

A second woman, Dominique Johnson of Washington, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery in connection with the case. She was sentenced to six months in jail. Johnson’s attorney said his client is remorseful.

Gallmon’s attorney did not immediately respond to a telephone request for comment following the sentencing.
