A man and woman were arrested this week, charged with murder after detectives say they shot and killed a woman inside an Oakland Park hotel room last month.
Schenieder Joseph, 27, and Lakeshia Thomas, 32, were both being held in jail with no bond Thursday.
On July 25, Jasmin Antee Nealy, 30, of Orlando, was found in a pool of blood by a housekeeper in room 516 at the Days Inn, 1595 W. Oakland Park Blvd., after staff noticed the door was partially open, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Detectives say Nealy had been shot hours earlier.
Text messages on Nealy’s phone led detectives to Joseph, according to BSO. Joseph was supposed to show up in Nealy’s hotel room just before 6:30 a.m.

Joseph can be seen on the hotel’s security cameras walking through the hotel’s parking lot before taking the stairs up to the fifth floor. Thomas took the elevator up to the fifth floor, BSO said.
Joseph entered the room first, followed by Thomas. BSO said the pair was in the room for less than one minute before they left together.
