The brother of a man charged with the murder of a 22-year-old woman last September has been charged with murder in the same incident.

Columbia Police arrested 23-year-old Donald Wittich for murder.  His 17-year-old brother, Deante Dominic Ali Wittich, was charged with murder days after the deadly shooting of Amanda F. McKemie of Gaston. Deante Wittich was 16 at the time of the shooting and will face charges as an adult.

McKemie was shot in the head while riding in a car on West Campanella Drive off Farrow Road in Columbia. She later died at the hospital.

Investigators have not released a motive in the shooting.
