A 40-year-old Annapolis man was indicted yesterday for first-degree murder and assault with intent to murder in two stabbings, one of which occurred during an argument over a tattoo.

An Anne Arundel County grand jury indicted Warren Guy of the first block of Madison Place in the killing of Samuel Simms, 46.

Mr. Simms, who had no fixed address, was stabbed around 9 p.m. Sept. 4 during an argument in Mr. Guy's home, said State's Attorney Frank R. Weathersbee.

Mr. Guy told Annapolis police officers who investigated the call that he had just killed a visitor.

He directed police to the body, which was in his bathroom, then used a series of expletives as he asked police to remove the corpse, Mr. Weathersbee said.

Mr. Guy had been drinking heavily at the time, said Mr. Weathersbee. Mr. Guy also was indicted yesterday for assault with intent to murder in connection with a stabbing that occurred his house seven hours earlier, Mr. Weathersbee said.

Police said Mr. Guy stabbed Ray Wyrick, 32, of the 2700 block of Riverview Drive, Riva, in the stomach after the two men got into an argument over a girl's name tattooed on the victim's chest.

The county grand jury also indicted two Baltimore women yesterday on armed robbery and conspiracy charges stemming from a July 19 robbery at the Host-Marriott offices at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

Cash for the airport's operations is stored at the offices, said Assistant State's Attorney Eugene M. Whissel II.

Police said two people brandishing guns entered the office about 3 p.m. July 19. They fled with $75,000, and the money has not been recovered.

Dechristie Marie Warner, 39, and Paula Denise Keys, 35, were indicted.

An investigation by the state's attorney's office and Maryland Transportation Authority police indicated that Ms. Warner, who was working with some other cashiers at the time of the holdup, planned the robbery with Ms. Keys, Mr. Whissel said.

Ms. Keys, who was allegedly one of the armed assailants, had worked at Host-Marriott prior to the robbery, Mr. Whissel said.

Police said they are still searching for another suspect.
