Former civilian employee for DC police charged with conspiracy to commit murder

WASHINGTON — A former civilian D.C. police employee has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder, police said in a statement Friday.

Ronnika Jennings, who NBC Washington reported was a former clerk, was first charged with obstruction of justice in April in the same case.

She allegedly used her access at the police department to provide information to a gang member facing murder charges, NBC Washington reported.

Now, police said Jennings has been charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder while armed.
