Authorities Charge 2nd Man in 2006 Botched Hit

Man allegedly called for hit on someone over a drug debt

A Pennsylvania grand jury has indicted an alleged heroin trafficker in the death of a teenage boy in what police say was a botched hit.

Daniel Tyrice Macon, 25, was charged Tuesday with homicide and solicitation to commit murder in the 2006 death of 15-year-old Kevin Muzila, Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli said.

Macon allegedly drove another man to Muzila's block and gave him orders to kill someone over a drug debt, investigators say.

Paul Serrano III knocked on the door of the wrong house and opened fire when Muzila opened it. Serrano pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison.

Macon will be extradited from Warren County, N.J., where he is incarcerated on other charges, Morganelli said.
