Police late Monday arrested a fourth person in connection with the weekend killing of a New York man inside a north Charlotte hotel.

Salena Yvonne Harris, 25, was charged with murder, attempted murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon, and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Police earlier arrested and charged three others in connection with the killing of Keith Cox, 43. Cox died inside the Budget Inn on North Graham Street at I-85 after being shot around 1:37 a.m.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Cox was visiting Charlotte from New York and may have gone to the motel to meet some females. He worked as a concession stand operator for concerts.

Members of his family told NewsChannel 36 that Cox may have been lured to the motel and targeted for robbery.

Another man, Clayton King, was taken to Carolinas Medical Center in serious condition.

Harris was booked into the Mecklenburg jail. According to the sheriff’s website, she was arrested in February and charged with possession of stolen property and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Police say they continue to investigate the weekend shooting. If you have information you are asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a homicide detective, or call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
