Woman Charged With Murder For Setting Up Man For Fatal Robbery
A woman has been charged with murder and robbery in the death of a man in the Hilton Garden Inn in Midtown, authorities said Wednesday.
Christine O’Brien let four men and a woman into the room of Roderick Goodwin, 28, at the hotel on W. 25th St. early Monday, Assistant District Attorney Ali Russell said at the woman’s arraignment Wednesday night.
Russell said the group then viciously beat Goodwin in a bid to steal his hotel safe. Goodwin was found with severe head trauma beneath a mattress and died at Bellevue Hospital.
The accomplices were still at large early Thursday.
O’Brien, in her early 30s, was arrested after assaulting a cop in New Jersey in 2013, Russell said during the arraignment.
