A second man was arrested in connection with a cold case murder dating back to the 1975.Alice Lewis, 80, was raped and killed in her Mar Vista home in 1975.

Using DNA evidence, officers last year arrested 50-year-old Dennis Vasquez, who was 17 at the time of the murder.

But police suspected he didn't act alone, and now they've filed murder charges against a one-time friend of Vasquez identified as Kevin Michael Shanahan. Shanahan was 15 at the time of the murder.

Shanahan is currently in custody in Minnesota awaiting extradition.
