A second woman has been arrested in the nightclub death of 23-year-old Kim Pham. The Associated Press reported on Jan. 24, 2014, that a 27-year-old Santa Ana resident has been arrested in the killing of Pham who was beaten to death outside of The Crosby nightclub in Orange County.

Annie "Kim" Pham was attacked this past weekend outside The Crosby nightclub and left unconscious on the sidewalk. She was taken to the hospital and spent a few days there before being taken off of life support and dying.

This past Wednesday, 25-year-old Vanesa Zavala pleaded not guilty to the nightclub death. The name of the second woman arrested has not yet been released.

Police believe that Zavala was leaving the nightclub with four other people when they "crossed paths" with Pham and her friends. That was when a fight broke out, but it isn't known what started the whole thing.

It is believed that Zavala, the other woman arrested, and one more woman were fighting with Pham.

The identity of the third woman is not yet known, but police have said that she is a "person of interest" in the nightclub death. Investigators are looking to speak with her whenever they can find her.

"We don't see this as a hate crime or anything of that nature," Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido said as he believes this to be an "isolated incident."
