Police last night arrested a woman thought to be the fourth and final suspect in the fatal robbery of a man at a Tacoma motel last week.

The woman and three men previously arrested in the case are expected in Superior Court later today for arraignment.

Authorities contend they robbed Donald Phily, 42, last Friday at the Morgan Motel on Pacific Avenue. Phily was shot and killed during the robbery, police said.

The woman arrested last night was booked into jail about 10:15 p.m. for investigation of murder and robbery.
