A second former McPherson College football player has been charged in the beating death of Tabor College student-athlete Brandon Brown.
Dequinte Oshea Flournoy, 19, of Dallas, was charged Wednesday with aiding and abetting second-degree murder. Police say Brown, 26, was found lying unconscious Sept. 16 after a fight at a party in McPherson.
Flournoy played football for McPherson College in 2011 but left the team in August. He is suspended from McPherson College, pending the outcome of the case. Bond has been set at $500,000.
The first arrest occurred Sept. 22, a few hours before Brown died. Alton Lamont Franklin, 19, of Dallas Texas, originally was charged with aggravated battery with bond at $100,000. After Brown’s death, the charge was updated to aiding and abetting second-degree murder. Bond was set at $500,000.
