Jamyra Gallmon gets 24 years for Donovan Hotel murder

- The two women who pleaded guilty in connection with the murder of a D.C. lawyer were sentenced Friday morning. 

Jamyra Gallmon, who pleaded guilty in May to second-degree murder, was sentenced to 24 years in prison, FOX 5's Matt Ackland reported.

She stabbed David Messerschmitt, 30, multiple times February 9 in a room at the Donovan Hotel during a robbery gone wrong.  

Messerschmitt met Gallmon through a Craigslist ad he posted soliciting sex with a man.

Gallmon’s roommate, Dominique Johnson, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery. She received 12 months in prison with six months suspended.

Prosecutors said the women only got away with $40 in cash, a SmartTrip card and the victim's cell phone.
