An internet ad that led to the death of a man in what appeared to be a botched robbery attempt earlier this month has resulted in a murder charge against a second person.
Nouhoum Keita told police that he invited Bridgette Trent to his home June 14 after meeting her “via an internet advertisement.”
While Kent was in the home, an aquaintance, Jeffery Lamar Alexander, came to the house, police said. Alexander and Kent then attempted to rob Keita at gunpoint, police said.
Alexander was killed during a struggle that ensued, police said.
Trent, 26, was arrested June 22 and charged with murder.
Thursday, police arrested 26-year-old Adjahlon Eleazar Flagg in connection to the incident.
Flagg allegedly drove Alexander to Keita’s house, prepared his vehicle as a getaway car and provided Alexander with the firearm used in the robbery attempt, said Atlanta Police spokeswoman Kim Jones.
Trent and Flagg have been charged with criminal attempt to commit armed robery and felony murder.
Both were transported to Fulton County Jail.
