Latisha Frazier was killed over $2,000, according to court documents.
Frazier, an 18-year-old woman who went missing in August, was beaten and choked in a Southeast D.C. apartment because a 17-year-old thought she had stolen the money, the affidavit in support of an arrest warrant for Johnnie Sweet reads.
Sweet has been arrested in connection to Frazier's death. Three others also face charges.
According to the documents, the group attacked Frazier on Aug. 2 because they wanted "teach her a lesson." Three women beat Frazier then Sweet allegedly jumped in. Another man also joined in the beating.
Frazier was then shoved in a closet and bound with tape. Her head was covered with a sheet and she was choked, according to the documents. Sweet left the apartment and was told that Frazier was dead when he returned.
"The defendant stated that he poked the decedent with a stick to see if there were any signs of life," the documents read, "but the decedent did not respond."
The documents are posted after the jump. Fair warning: they are a bit graphic.
