Police have charged a second man in connection with the homicide of a 17-year-old boy, saying another suspect was present during his fatal assault.

Jaime Adao died after being assaulted by an intruder in his grandmother’s McGee Street home on March 3, 2019.

Those who knew the senior at Tec Voc High School described him as well known and liked, and his parents told CTV News they need justice for his death.
