Buncombe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Natalie Bailey stated that 26-year-old Christina Maria Guffey, of Candler, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery. A second person, 22-year-old Christopher Jordan Johnson, of Asheville, has been charged with armed robbery in connection with the crime.
