A second teenager has been charged with murder over the fatal stabbing of a 17-year-old boy in Melbourne.
The teen, 17, from Hillside will appear at a children's court on Monday charged with murder, armed robbery and intentionally causing serious injury over the attack on two other teens at Kings Park on September 28.
Co-accused Joshua Horton, 18, appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Wednesday charged with killing Maaka Hakiwai, 17, during the altercation.
Maaka died in hospital, while his 18-year-old brother Nate was also seriously injured. His condition has since improved.
An argument between the two groups of teens was allegedly sparked over a hat one of the Hakiwai brothers was wearing, The Herald Sun reported.
The 17-year-old was brought into custody after three Protective Services Officers spotted the teen at Watergardens station, recognising him from a crime circular Victoria Police members were issued last week.
Horton was remanded in custody until a committal mention on February 12. -
