Norwich, N.Y. — Authorities have charged a second man in the killing of an 11-year-old girl at a rural upstate New York home last month.

State police say 34-year-old Tobias Rundstrom-Wooding, of Norwich, was charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Jacelyn O’Connor.

Trooper’s say they were called to 36-year-old James Brower’s Norwich home early on July 30 for a report of a girl in cardiac arrest. Police say Jacelyn was dead when they arrived.

Brower was charged with first-degree murder. Police say he smothered the girl while raping her.

Rundstrom-Wooding is due back in court Monday morning. His lawyer, Scott Clippinger, wasn’t available for comment.

Both men are being held without bail in Chenango County jail.

Jacelyn lived in Morris in neighboring Otsego County.
