A second arrest has been made in the homicide of Tabor College football player Brandon Brown.
DeQuinte Flournoy, 19, was arrested in connection with aiding and abetting a second-degree murder, according to a news release from the McPherson Police Department.
Another person, Alton Franklin, 19, was arrested on Saturday and has been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.
Both Franklin and Flournoy are Dallas natives and were both listed on McPherson College’s 2011 football roster. Franklin was a student at McPherson at the time of his arrest, but was thrown off the football team in August, according to McPherson football coach Pete Sterbick.
