MANHATTAN — The NYPD have arrested a woman in the murder of a man found beaten and stuffed under a bed in a Midtown hotel, police said.

Christine O’Brien, 31, along with five other suspects who remain at large, allegedly robbed and beat 28-year-old Roderick Goodwin before leaving his body under a bed at the Hilton Garden Inn early Monday, according to police.

Goodwin checked into room 2203 of the West 35th Street hotel using a fake name — and paid in cash, sources previously told DNAinfo New York.

O'Brien, who police said was with Goodwin at check-in, returned to the lobby at around 3:30 a.m. and let four men and one woman into the elevators and up to the room, police said.

Once inside the room, one man smashed a bottle on the back of Goodwin's head while the others kicked and punched him, while demanding the combination of the room's safe, police said.

Guests on Goodwin's floor reported a commotion coming from his room at around 3:45 a.m. When hotel security entered the room they found Goodwin lying under the bed with wounds to back of his head, surrounded by blood and shattered glass. The safe had been removed from the wall, according to police.

Goodwin was pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital, police said.

Surveillance video footage showed the four men and two women leaving the hotel at around 4 a.m. Two of the men went down the stairs carrying a large object covered with a sheet, according to police.

Police said O'Brien lives in West New York, NJ, and has no prior arrests.

She was arrested Tuesday afternoon and arraigned on charges of murder and robbery, according to court documents. She was ordered held without bail and is due back in court on Friday.
