FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have arrested a second man in connection with the slayings of two brothers in Fort Dodge.

Webster County court records say 46-year-old Paul Keller is charged with obstructing prosecution or defense and with possession of amphetamine. His attorney didn't immediately return a call Wednesday from The Associated Press. Court documents don't say what Keller is alleged to have done to merit the obstruction charge.

Another man, 28-year-old Tanner King , is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the Oct. 22 shooting deaths of 37-year-old Marion and 34-year-old Eldominic Rhodes. A criminal complaint says the younger man's body was found in an alley and his older brother's body was found in a nearby apartment parking lot.

King's attorney, Paul Rounds, declined to comment.
