MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) _ Authorities have arrested a second former McPherson College football player in the beating death of a football player from nearby Tabor College in Kansas.

The 19-year-old suspect from Dallas, Texas was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of aiding and abetting second-degree murder in the death of 26-year-old Brandon Brown of Sacramento, California.

Police said Brown was found lying unconscious September 16th after a fight at a party in McPherson, about 25 miles from the Tabor campus in Hillsboro. He died Saturday.

The McPherson Sentinel reports that the suspect played football for McPherson College in 2011. The suspect was listed on the 2012 preseason roster but isn't currently listed as a team member.

A McPherson College spokesman says a disciplinary committee previously decided to suspend any students arrested in Brown's death.
