Police have charged a fourth youth in relation to a homicide in Halifax.

Wednesday investigators arrested the second youth who was previously arrested and released on April 22nd in relation to the case.

The 16-year-old youth is scheduled to appear in Halifax Youth Justice Court Thursday to face one count of second-degree murder.

Last month, two 14-year-old youths and one 16-year-old youth appeared in youth court to face one count each of second-degree murder.

On April 22nd, police responded to a report of an injured person in the parking lot of a shopping centre on Mumford Road.

Officers located 16-year-old Ahmad Maher Al Marrach, who was taken to hospital where he died.

Later that day, officers arrested two 16-year-old youths who were later released without charges in relation to the investigation.
