Second person charged in Marriott hotel homicide

Police say a second woman has been charged in the death of a man whose body was found in an Ottawa hotel room.

They say 25-year-old Tamara Bahlawan appeared in court on a charge of first-degree murder on Sunday morning.

She is accused in the death of Mohamad Mana, 30, who was found dead in the hotel on Sept. 16.

His cause of death has not been released. Investigators say Bahlawan's arrest comes days after another woman, 32-year-old Crystal Bastien, surrendered to police.

Bastien has also been charged with murder and appeared in court earlier this week.
