The Washington Post reports Jamyra Gallmon, 21, pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree murder. According to the newspaper, during the plea hearing at a District of Columbia court, prosecutors said Gallmon plotted to rob Messerschmitt and tricked him into thinking she was a man, even emailing him a photo of a man's torso. According to court records, they initially made contact through an ad on Craigslist.
 
Gallmon's roommate and alleged girlfriend, Dominique Johnson, 19, also pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit robbery for her role in events on the day of the murder.
