Two 14-year-olds have been charged with second-degree murder in the homicide case of Ahmad Maher Al Marrach.

Halifax Regional Police arrested the two youths in Sackville Wednesday night, according to a social media post.

The two will appear in court Friday.

Police received a call about an injured person around 5 p.m. on April 22. Officers found Al Marrach in the parking lot of a shopping centre at 7001 Mumford Road on April 22.

He was taken to hospital, where he died of his injuries. Police determined it was a homicide.
