From MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPD) Homicide Branch have announced an arrest has been made in a homicide that occurred in the 600 block of 14th Street, Northeast, on Tuesday, March 21, 2017.

At approximately 4:19 pm, members of the First District responded to the listed location for a report of an unconscious person inside of a residence. Upon arrival, members located an adult female suffering from multiple stab wounds. DC Fire and EMS responded to the scene and found no signs consistent with life. The victim remained on the scene until she was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

The decedent was identified as 34-year-old Corrina Mehiel, of Burnsville, North Carolina.

On Monday, March 27, 2017, members of MPD’s Fifth District arrested 28-year-old El Hadji Alpha Madiou Toure, of no fixed address, as a fugitive from another jurisdiction for an outstanding warrant. He was subsequently transported to the Homicide Branch where he was charged with First Degree Murder while Armed and Theft One in the death of Corrina Mehiel.”

    So it was just some rando guy that was out committing crimes? I’m not surprised, but still …. really unsettling.

      It is strange. I hope we get details soon- like, was this a driver who was taking her home from her friends’ apartment that evening or was this a guy that was took her by surprise when she was entering her apartment? Or did she just open her door and the guy busted in? All of it is disconcerting.

      Apparently he has a long arrest history under multiple aliases and served time for 2 robberies. He was wanted for probation violations when he killed this poor woman. Another POS who is spending his life victimizing people who actually contribute something to the world.

    Nothing will bring back a loss like that, but I hope this brings closure and some form of justice to her family.

      Hopefully the closure comes with an actual conviction and serious jail time, rather than DC’s usual catch and release program.

        Agree. Is it typical for the “catch and release” program to apply to first degree murder situations?

          Well, who knows ? It’s DC

            especially with decent folk always tryn to get out of jury duty.

        • INWDC

          My guess would be that for a murder charge they probably would not release the guy. I hope I’m right about that, and that this monster is kept behind bars for the rest of its life. What a horrible end for this woman.
