Daughter, One Other Arrested in Murder of D.C. Nurse

WASHINGTON (WNEW/AP) — Authorities have arrested two people in the slaying of a MedStar Washington Hospital Center nurse at her Virginia home, including the victim’s daughter.

The Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office says 25-year-old Christina Brown and 25-year-old Alaina Mercer, both of King George County, were arrested late Friday. They’ve been charged with conspiracy to commit murder and are being held without bond.

Mercer is the daughter of Nancy Mercer, who was found dead at her Spotsylvania County home after she didn’t show up for work on May 18.

Police have not detailed a possible motive in the slaying.
