Cedar Rapids Police have made another arrest in the Latasha Roundtree murder investigation.

Police say Yasin Muhidin, 17, was arrested last week in Rochester, Minn., on unrelated sexual abuse charges.

He appeared in Linn County court Sunday and was charged with first-degree murder, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit a forcible felony and trafficking in stolen weapons.

Latasha "Tasha" Roundtree, 19, was killed Sept. 22, 2012.

Police responded to a call in the 600 block of 16th Avenue SW in Cedar Rapids on a report of shots fired.

They later learned that Roundtree was admitted to an area hospital with gunshot wounds. She later died from her injuries.

Muhidin is the fifth person to be arrested in this case.

Tajh Ross, Liban Muhidin, Adrian Kenney and Jeremiah Ellis all face charges stemming from Roundtree's death.
