MCKEESPORT, Pa. (AP) - Police say a second suspect has been arrested in a shooting during an attempted burglary that killed two sisters and critically wounded a man earlier this month near Pittsburgh.

Allegheny County police say 19-year-old Kylee Lankford was arrested Tuesday morning in a Walmart in North Versailles.

Authorities said two men broke into a McKeesport home Sept. 1 and ended up killing 52-year-old Melodie Robb and 55-year-old Kimberly Lesko.

Nineteen-year-old Miras Kelly II, of McKeesport, turned himself in less than a week later. Both suspects are charged with two counts of attempted homicide along with robbery, burglary, conspiracy and aggravated assault.

Court documents don’t list an attorney for Lankford and a listed number for him couldn’t be found Tuesday. Kelley’s attorney didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
