DUNCAN, Okla — A fourth person is charged in the death of an Australian baseball player in southern Oklahoma.

The Stephens County District Attorney’s Office tells The Associated Press that 22-year-old Oddesse Barnes, of Duncan, is charged with accessory after murder in the death of 22-year-old Christopher Lane, of Melbourne.

Lane was jogging in Duncan last August when he was shot and killed.

Two teenagers have been charged with first-degree murder.

Barnes was arraigned Monday and entered a not guilty plea.

Online court records weren’t available, and the court clerk’s office said it could not provide the charging documents. But TV station KWTV reports court papers say that Barnes aided Luna and Jones by hiding the weapon they allegedly used in the shooting.

Another teenager has been charged with accessory after the fact.
