Lawrence police arrested a 19-year-old woman Friday night after investigating the possible solicitation of someone to commit a murder.

In a statement this weekend, Sgt. Tarik Khatib said police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms investigated a report "concerning an individual who solicited another to commit a murder."

As a result of the investigation, officers arrested 19-year-old Krista Marie Harris, of Lawrence, about 9 p.m. in the 1000 block of West 23rd Street, according to Khatib's statement.

According to jail records, Harris was booked into the Douglas County Jail at 11:39 p.m. Friday. The charge listed is conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, with a bond of $250,000.

Jail records also listed Harris as a transient.

Khatib's statement said that no additional information would be available until Monday.

A: a cereal offender.

Transient does not mean homeless. It just means that she does not have permanent ties in this area, or has not lived in the same residence for a long time. The fact is she's lived here for well over a year. And you have only heard a very few facts (or allegations) so maybe stop judging so harshly and quickly.
