WASHINGTON (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.

WRC-TV (http://tinyurl.com/nl2s6q8 ) reports that the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrests late Friday of 25-year-old Christina Brown and 25-year-old Alaina Mercer, both of King George County. They’ve been charged with conspiracy to commit murder and are being held without bond.
