SYDNEY, N.S. -- Police have charged a second person in connection with the fatal shooting of a 24-year-old man in Cape Breton.

Cape Breton Regional Police say Jennifer Lynn Chisolm of Ben Eoin is charged with accessory after the fact to murder following the investigation into the death of Brandon Kelly last week.

Police say Chisolm is the mother of Brandon James Berthiaume, who was arrested on Friday in connection with the incident.

Berthiaume faces charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder with a firearm.

Officers were called to a home in Reserve Mines, about 14 kilometres outside of Sydney, on June 25.

Police say Brandon Kelly was found suffering from gunshot wounds and died at the scene.
