ANCHORAGE - A second man has been charged in the death of a teenager who was shot at a party at an Anchorage warehouse.

Twenty-eight-year-old Chad Zurfluh is charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and other counts in the March 15 death of 16-year-old Colton Crow.

Twenty-nine-year-old Oscar Lajoie also is charged with second-degree murder and other counts in connection with the slaying.

Authorities say the killing grew out of an altercation involving Zurfluh, who initially got into a fight at the warehouse, then returned later with Lajoie, his sister's boyfriend.

Court documents say Lajoie shot into a door and a wall, killing Crow and wounding two others inside.

Zurfluh's sister, 22-year-old Jaeleen Zurfluh, is charged with hindering the prosecution.
