(Newser) – Michael Adebolajo, the second suspect in the brutal killing of British soldier Lee Rigby, has been charged with murder. The other suspect in the slaying, Michael Adebowale, had already been charged, but Adebolajo was in hospital receiving treatment for injuries suffered in the attack, and wasn't released until last night. He has also been charged with the attempted murder of two police officers and possession of a firearm, the AP reports. Adebolajo will appear in court on Monday, adds the BBC.
