SILVER SPRING, Md. — Two more people, including the brother of a suspect arrested earlier, have been charged in stabbing death of a man who was attacked outside a motel near Washington.
Montgomery County Police said in a statement that 22-year-old Antonio Ortiz and 23-year-old James Jackson were arrested earlier this month. They are charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of 24-year-old Sulaiman Jalloh.
Detectives say Jalloh and friends were approached on May 28 to buy marijuana at the Silver Spring Metro station. They agreed to meet outside a motel nearby, where Jalloh and friends stole cash and shoes.
Jalloh later died after being beaten and stabbed by a group.
Twenty-year-old Ruben Ortiz and 19-year-old Shanee Collette Cox were arrested last month and charged with first-degree murder. Ruben Ortiz is Antonio Ortiz’s brother.
