LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is now behind bars, and accused of murdering a 15-year-old girl.

Police say Cephus Gore gunned down 15-year-old Tysha Spearman, a Shawnee High School student, after an argument with several men in the Portland neighborhood last June.

After being shot Spearman was taken to Kosair Children's Hospital, where she later died. Police say Gore later tried to dispose of the weapon. He was arrested Tuesday night and charged with murder.


Antonio McFarland was also arrested in connection with the murder last year.

Cecil Spearman and Reginae Williams are also facing charges in this case.
