Two people have been arrested in connection with a murder of a woman found dead in a College Park hotel room.

Prince George’s County police arrested 23-year-old Vaughn Darvell Bellamy and 24-year-old Barry Foxx early Friday morning at Foxx’s Temple Hills home.

Bellamy has been charged with first- and second-degree murder as well as a gun charge. Foxx has been charged with accessory after the fact.

Officers responded to a welfare check at the hotel at around 1:15 p.m. Tuesday and found 25-year-old Catina Cortes in a hotel room suffering from a gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators say Bellamy and Cortes agreed to meet at the hotel and exchange money for sex. Police say Foxx helped Bellamy with transportation from the scene.

Police say phone records connected Bellamy as a suspect in the murder.

Police say a handgun that is believed to be the murder weapon was recovered inside Foxx’s home.

Both men are being held at the Department of Corrections.
