POCOMOKE CITY, Md.- A second suspect has been arrested in connection with the stabbing murder of a 25-year-old man at the Duck Inn convenience store in Pocomoke City.

The Worcester County Sheriff's Office arrested 22-year-old Kaniesha Lashelle Johnson of Pocomoke City at a home in Wicomico County on Monday. According to Maryland State Police, she is charged with first- and second-degree murder. Troopers said Johnson's sister, 30-year-old Latoya Marie Johnson of Salisbury, has been arrested and charged with first-degree assault and accessory after the fact of murder in connection with the crime.

Pocomoke City police said officers responded to the scene at around 1 p.m. for a reported domestic dispute at a gas pump outside the Duck Inn convenience store on the 600 block of Lynn Haven Drive. When officers arrived on the scene, they said they found 25-year-old Derrick Collick of Pocomoke City at a nearby medical facility looking for help for a stab wound to his upper body. Police said he was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center and pronounced dead on arrival.

According to Maryland State Police, Collick was inside the store when an argument broke out at the pump. Troopers said Collick tried to break up the dispute when he was stabbed. Police said they believe Collick knew the Johnson sisters. 

Both Kaniehsa Johnson and Latoya Johnson are being held without bond in the Worcester County Jail. 

Investigators are continuing to interview witnesses and people who live nearby. Anyone with information about the stabbing or domestic dispute should contact the Worcester County Bureau of Investigations at (410) 632-1111.
