The Times reported that 26-year-old Hykeem Tucker was charged with murder and weapons offenses in the Nov. 11 death of Carl Batie, a Mercer County corrections officer. Authorities previously arrested 26-year-old Maurice Skillman in Batie's death.

Tucker and Skillman are each being held on $1 million cash or bond.

The newspaper reports that the 27-year-old Batie, of Willingboro, was attending a party celebrating the re-election of President Barack Obama. He was on a balcony when he was struck by shots fired from a parking lot below.

Police have said they believe Batie was an innocent bystander.
