Norwalk teen faces murder charges for death of friend

After more than a month of searching for the person who fatally stabbed a teen in Norwalk, one of the victim?s friends turned himself in to police Monday morning.

Amos Brown Jr., 16, turned himself in after police issued a warrant for his arrest Friday. Brown is charged with murder in the stabbing death of 17-year-old Tykwan Hunt.

Hunt?s body was found in a McDonald?s parking lot on Main Avenue in Norwalk hours after police responded to a fight at a nearby house party in January. Hunt?s mother says her son and Brown were childhood friends who played football together.

Brown is being held on $500,000 bail and is expected to be arraigned in Norwalk Tuesday.
