LONDON (AP) -- British police have charged a second suspect with the murder of a soldier who was run down by a car and hacked to death in a London street.

The Metropolitan Police says 28-year-old Michael Adebolajo was charged Saturday with the murder of Lee Rigby.

He also is accused of attempting to murder two police officers, and possession of a firearm.

Adebolajo was released from a hospital Friday after treatment for injuries suffered in the May 22 attack.

Another man, 22-year-old Michael Adebowale, also has been charged with Rigby's murder.
