CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A second man is in jail, accused of murdering a 21-year-old man.

Investigators received information about another suspect, 19-year-old Jason Ortiz, who was found outside of a bail bond company.

Officers met Ortiz, and he was taken into custody. Ortiz was charged with murder, and his bond was set at $150,000.
