    Burlington, Vermont, police say a fifth person is facing murder charges for the beating death of a man at a homeless encampment in the Vermont city.

    Police say 29-year-old Amber Dennis was arrested Monday and charged with second-degree murder for her role in the assault, which led to the death of Amos Beede.

    She's being held on $100,000 bail and is due to appear in court Tuesday. It's unclear if she has a lawyer.

    Police say Dennis was living in the encampment when Beede was assaulted May 22. He died six days later.

    Four other suspects who fled Vermont after the assault are being brought back to Vermont from San Diego to face murder charges.

    Investigators say Beede was attacked as part of a dispute within the homeless encampment.
