OLNEY — Four people are facing charges in connection with the shooting death of a 19-year-old last month in southern Illinois, authorities announced Sunday.

Illinois State Police said the latest person to be charged in Kyle M. Johnson’s death was 32-year-old Dale E. Boatman of Olney. He was charged Saturday with committing first-degree murder by accountability and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

It was immediately unclear if he had an attorney. A listed phone number for Boatman was disconnected when called Sunday.

Charges have already been filed against against 33-year-old Tara N. Haws, 18-year-old Rick A. Meador and a 16-year-old girl.

Police found Johnson on Sept. 6 with multiple gunshot wounds. The Olney man died later at a hospital.
