MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say they have charged a woman with murder in connection with a shooting death in an Alabama motel.

News outlets report 24-year-old Coaty Bankston was arrested Monday, a day after 36-year-old Robert Williams was shot and killed at an Extend A Suites motel in Mobile.

Mobile Police spokeswoman Charlette Solis says there was reportedly an argument in a second-floor room of the motel before gunshots were heard.

Mobile jail records show Bankston has prior convictions on theft of property, criminal trespass and other charges. It is not clear if she has an attorney.

Bankston has a bond hearing scheduled for Wednesday.
