She was 36-year-old Milisa Johnson, the coroner’s office said. Her death was ruled a homicide due to sharp force injuries.
Police received multiple 911 calls at about 2:40 p.m. Friday reporting a “disturbance” between a man and a woman at a Motel 6, 195 E. Tropicana Ave., near Koval Lane, the Metropolitan Police Department has said. When police arrived, officers found an unresponsive woman with a stab wound.
She was pronounced dead at the scene, in the motel’s second-floor open air walkway, the coroner’s office said.
Investigators believe the man stabbed the woman during the dispute, and the woman fell over in the stairwell of the motel before she died, police said.
Further information about Jones’ arrest was not available Wednesday. He is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
