MIAMI, May 14 (UPI) -- A fifth suspect was arrested in Florida Wednesday in the shooting death of Washington Redskins defensive back Sean Taylor.

The Miami Herald reported that 16-year-old Timothy Brown was charged with first-degree murder under a sealed warrant filed by Miami-Dade prosecutors.

At least one of the four said Taylor's home was robbed of $5,000 was stolen during an earlier incident and then targeted for a second robbery.

Michael Hornung, an attorney for one of the suspects, has claimed that as much of $200,000 was hidden in a black bag in one of the bedrooms in Taylor's home in the November incident.

Taylor, a former Miami-Florida star, lost a large amount of blood after he was shot in the groin during a botched robbery attempt at Palmetto Bay, Fla. home Nov., 26, 2007. He died the next day at a Miami-area hospital.
