RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Three people face charges stemming from the death of a Richmond woman whose body was found in a ravine.

Media outlets report that police charged 25-year-old Jamarr Rodney Hursey of Richmond on Wednesday with conspiracy to commit murder.

Forty-year-old Yvette L. Hairston of Richmond was charged last week with murder. Her daughter, 21-year-old Selena Y. Hairston, also faces a conspiracy charge.

Police found the body of 20-year-old Samantha Myers on March 24. Police say she was likely killed on Feb. 28.

The Richmond medical examiner's office said Myers died of blunt-force trauma to the head.

Myers was Yvette Hairston's stepsister.
