MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) - Skagit County prosecutors have charged a 19-year-old man with first-degree murder in the death of a Sedro-Woolley convenience store owner.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports (https://is.gd/n0cgTh ) that Timothy Michael Dillion was the second suspect charged in Yongmin Pak’s murder.

On Wednesday, a first-degree murder charge was also filed against 19-year-old Matthew John Tobin. Police allege Tobin was the driver of the SUV that struck Pak on Oct. 2.

She was fatally injured and her nephew was less seriously hurt after they chased a shoplifter out to a waiting vehicle. Police say the fleeing SUV hit them both and dragged the woman.

Sedro-Woolley Police Chief Lin Tucker says Dillon was arrested Wednesday afternoon after he showed up in the lobby of the Burlington Police Department and was recognized by officers. It wasn’t clear whether he went there to turn himself in.
