DES MOINES, Iowa — Police have charged a second teenager with murder in the death of an Illinois man at a Des Moines home.

Des Moines police on Friday charged a 16-year-old with first-degree murder and robbery in the November 2014 shooting death of 24-year-old Aaron Michael McHenry, a resident of Rockford, Illinois, who had been staying in Des Moines for several months.

Police charged the 16-year-old, who lives in Des Moines, while he was in custody for a separate incident.

A day after the shooting, police had charged a 17-year-old from Des Moines with first-degree murder.

Police say the shooting appeared to be related to a drug transaction.

The Associated Press doesn't typically name juveniles charged with crimes.
