An Atlanta woman was charged with malice murder after investigators accused her of shooting a man to death in a DeKalb County hotel room last month.

Aushun Lavoris Price, 35, was arrested Wednesday in connection with the death of Frank Hosey, DeKalb sheriff’s office spokeswoman Cynthia Williams said in a news release.

According to authorities, Price shot the 40-year-old Covington man in a hotel room June 19. The man later died of his injuries, officials said.

Investigators have not determined a motive for the shooting, according to Williams.

It is not clear how Price was identified as a suspect. She was arrested at a location on Metropolitan Avenue in Atlanta, Williams said. Price was booked into the DeKalb County Jail, where she remains without bond.
