16-year-old Corey Sandifer was arrested Sunday and charged with first degree murder and aggravated robbery.

The other suspect in the case, 15-year-old Derek Cunningham, was arrested Saturday and faces similar charges.

Back on October 4th, police say Cunningham and Sandifer robbed and shot 42-year-old J.P. Shelley while he was working on a house in the 4700 block of Scottsdale.

Shelley was taken to The MED, initially in critical condition, but he later died from his injuries.
