2nd Woman Charged With Kim Pham's Murder In Nightclub Beating

Posted: Updated:

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Southern California prosecutors have charged a second woman with murder in the fatal beating of a 23-year-old woman outside a nightclub.

Candace Brito will appear Tuesday in Orange County Superior Court to enter a plea in death of Kim Pham.

Authorities say an argument between Pham and other club-goers escalated into violence outside The Crosby, a Santa Ana nightspot.

Several bystanders recorded the incident on cell phones and police are seeking a third woman as a person of interest.

Another woman, 25-year-old Vanesa Zavala, pleaded not guilty to murder last week.

Pham was a recent college graduate and an aspiring writer.

She was declared brain dead but remained on life support until Jan. 21 so her organs could be donated.
