In Maryland, Montgomery County police have made an arrest in the killing of a worker at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda on New Year's Day. The suspect was a fellow employee of the victim.

Keith Little is accused of stabbing Roosevelt Brockington to death in a boiler room of the hospital Saturday, and now faces first-degree murder charges. County Police Chief Thomas Manger says Little is accused of robbing Brockington as he killed him, but police do not believe that to be the motive for the crime.

"The victim in this case was Mr. Little's immediate supervisor. And that he had recently reprimanded Mr. Little and had given him a performance evaluation in which Mr. Little was not going to get a raise in salary," Manger says.

Manger adds police were tipped to Little after a co-worker witnessed him trying to dispose of a ski mask and gloves that he was carrying in a bucket of liquid at the hospital Wednesday.

This is not the first time Little has faced first-degree murder charges. He was arrested and charged with killing a co-worker in 2005 in D.C., but he was never convicted of the crime.

Suburban Hospital officials had little to say about the arrest, only stating their belief that the murder was an isolated incident between the two men.
