TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A second person has been arrested in the 2012 homicide of a 19-year-old man in Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/2e4dloE ) reports that the 24-year-old suspect was booked into jail Wednesday on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of 19-year-old Geovani Plakio. The suspect also is being held on two counts of attempted murder.

Earlier this month, 27-year-old Cortez Tyrell Timley was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in Plakio’s death. Timley also is charged with first-degree murder in the June 2014 shooting death of 26-year-old Jermel Robbins Sr.

Three weeks before the 2014 killing, Robbins was believed to have been in a SUV from which shots were fired that killed Tiffany Davenport-Ray. The 42-year-old bride was shot after leaving her wedding reception.
