WASHINGTON (WUSA) - DC Police say a second suspect has been arrested in the homicide of Latisha Frazier, who was reported missing in August 2010.

On Wednesday, Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force members arrested 17-year-old Johnnie Sweet. The arrest warrant charges him as an adult with Felony Murder (Kidnapping) in the August 2, 2010 kidnapping and murder of 18-year-old Latisha Frazier.

Frazier, of the 4200 block of South Capitol Street, SE, was reported as a Missing Person on August 4, 2010.

On January 21, 2011, police say information developed that suggested she may have been murdered. The case was then assigned to the Homicide Branch-Major Case Squad.
