A second person now faces charges in connection to the murder of a South Bend teen.

Prosecutors says 39-year-old Takisha Jacobs was arrested Wednesday and charged with assisting a criminal.

Police are looking for Rahim Brumfield. They say he shot and killed the girl back in January.

The 20-year-old is charged with murder.

Police say he shot 17-year-old Tysiona Crawford in her car. She then crashed her car into a home on Hildreth Street.

Court documents state Metro Homicide investigators found 17 shell casings at the scene.

Those documents also say police found evidence that Brumfield threatened Crawford through Facebook the day before the shooting, saying he could beat her and kill her.

Police say Jacobs lied to them about where she and Brumfield were to help cover for him.
