PORTSMOUTH-- A second person has been charged in the shooting death of 21-year-old Jalisa Knight.

On Thursday a Grand Jury charged 28-year-old Jerome Alexander Griffin Sr. with murder.

On May 14th, 2011, Jalisa Knight was found shot to death in the London Oaks neighborhood of Portsmouth. Police found her in her white Acura in the 1100 block of Mt. Vernon Ave.

Michael Ecklin, whose address is listed as the 1100 block of Mr. Vernon, was indicted for murder and weapons charges last August. Police say he also faces two attempted robbery charged related to incidents involving other victims prior to the shooting of Jalisa Knight.

Griffin is currently in the custody of the Portsmouth Sheriff's Office on unrelated charges.
