SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A second suspect has been charged with second-degree murder in a shooting outside a Springfield convenience store this summer, Greene County prosecutors said.

Cody J. Westmoreland, 24, was also charged Monday with armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon and felony robbery in the death of Jason E. Masters, 49, of Springfield.

Garrett Austin Eagle, 22, of Springfield, has been charged with second-degree murder in Masters' death.

Police found Masters in a truck at the store suffering from gunshot wounds Aug. 13. He died later of his injuries.

Eagle told investigators he was not the shooter but Westmoreland told detectives Eagle pulled the trigger, KYTV reported. Masters allegedly owned Eagle money, police said.
