A second Lawrence teenager faces murder charges for allegedly shooting and killing 19-year-old Angie Aristy, according to the Essex County District Attorney’s Office.

Last month, 14-year-old Jobe Santiago was charged with murder in connection with Aristy’s death. At that time, a second unidentified juvenile was charged with assault with intent to rob in connection with the killing.

On Thursday, a grand jury indicted Santiago and 15-year-old Jayden Torres, both of Lawrence, on murder charges in connection with Aristy’s death, the DA’s office said in a news release. Additionally, the grand jury indicted her juvenile delinquent for one count each of armed robbery.

On Sept. 6, Lawrence police responded to 300 Howard St. around 9:20 p.m. and found Aristy suffering from gunshot wounds. She was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead a short time later.

Both Santiago and Torres were arrested and charged in Lowell on Sept. 13, the release said.

Authorities have not released any further details about Aristy’s death, but the news release said state and regional police are still investigating.
