ST. LOUIS (AP) — Prosecutors say a second man has been charged in the shooting death of a Missouri police officer.
St. Louis County Prosecutor Wesley Bell’s announcement of the charge Tuesday came a day after the funeral for North St. Louis County Cooperative Officer Michael Langsdorf.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 58-year-old Kawynn Smith was charged with second-degree murder in Langsdorf’s death. Smith has a murder conviction from 1998.
It wasn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney to comment on his behalf.
Langsdorf was shot on June 23 while answering a bad check call at a market in the St. Louis County town of Wellston, Missouri.

Police say Smith gave Bonette Meeks Jr. fraudulent checks to cash while Smith waited in a car outside.
Meeks has been charged with first-degree murder. Police say Meeks got into a struggle with the officer and then shot him.
