WASHINGTON (AP) - A woman has pleaded guilty in connection with the stabbing death of an attorney at a Washington hotel.

Jamyra Gallmon of Washington pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree murder in the death of David Messerschmitt.

A court document previously filed in the case said the 21-year-old 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, 19-year-old Dominique Johnson of Washington, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery in connection with the case.

Sentencing is set for Aug. 14. Gallmon’s plea calls for an 18- to 25-year sentence. Johnson faces a maximum of five years.
