WASHINGTON (AP) D.C. police say a second Maryland teenager has been charged as an adult in the slaying of a worker in southeast Washington.

Police say 29-year-old Manuel D. Sanchez of Capitol Heights, Md., was working at a home in the 4600 block of Hillside Road when two suspects approached him and opened fire on May 28. Sanchez died at a hospital.

Officials say they arrested a 16-year-old boy from Capitol Heights on June 2 and charged him as an adult with felony murder. On Wednesday, police arrested another 16-year-old boy at his District Heights, Md., home and charged him as an adult with first-degree murder.

Police spokesman Officer Eric Frost says both teens have criminal records, and at least one of them has some serious offenses.
