MIAMI (AP) -Prosecutors in Miami say a fifth person has been charged in the slaying of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor.
Miami-Dade County State Attorney's Office spokesman Ed Griffith said Wednesday that 16-year-old Timothy Brown is charged with first-degree murder under a sealed warrant.
Brown is being held in Lee County. It's not immediately known when he'll be transferred to Miami-Dade County to face the charge.
The 24-year-old Taylor died of massive blood loss after he was shot at his Miami-area home during a botched robbery. Trial for the four Fort Myers-area suspects is currently scheduled for Aug. 24.
