FREEPORT, N.Y. (1010 WINS) -- A second suspected MS-13 member has been arrested on charges of murdering a 15-year-old from Roosevelt.

Nassau County cops say Angel Soler was set upon by a gang and hacked to death with a machete last July.

His remains weren't found until a tip came in months later.

Jose Figueroa Velazquez of Freeport is 18-years-old. He's been charged with second degree murder.

Soler's mother said she brought him to the U.S. to escape gang violence in Honduras.
