    A traveling magazine salesman was charged Tuesday with felony murder because his co-worker was stabbed to death during a brawl that started when the two stormed the room of a Sunny Isles Beach hotel guest.

    Jeremy Johnson, 22, was charged with second-degree felony murder, armed occupied burglary and kidnapping with a weapon.

    Police say he and co-worker Robert Spruiell, 37, traveling magazine salesmen from Prestige Sales in Arizona, broke into room 205 of the Golden Nugget hotel to confront Jesus Cisneros on Sunday morning.

    They believed Cisneros was selling drugs to other of their ''agents,'' young men and women who travel the country hawking subscriptions.

    Spruiell, a father of three who runs nearly a dozen magazine subscription companies based in Arizona, was stabbed to death in the fight.

    In Florida, someone who commits certain felonies -- in this case kidnapping and burglary -- that result in a death can be held on a murder charge.

    Cisneros, who said he acted in self-defense, cooperated with police and has not been charged.

    Johnson, of Sioux Falls, S.D., armed himself with a knife during the fight, too, police said.

    He also was wounded and taken to Aventura Hospital.

    On Tuesday, he was booked into Miami-Dade County Jail.

    Spruiell, Johnson and a group of agents had been at the Golden Nugget hotel, 18555 Collins Ave., for two weeks during a magazine sales trip.

    Spruiell had received a bout of bad press in recent months after three subscription sellers -- independent contractors working with one of his companies -- were arrested on murder and rape charges in New Mexico and California.
