Police arrested a second man wanted in connection with the killing of two McKeesport sisters after receiving a tip Tuesday morning that the man was at the North Versailles Walmart.

Kylee Lankford, 19, of McKeesport was arrested without incident shortly after 9 a.m., according to Allegheny County Police. Lankford is charged with robbery, burglary, conspiracy, aggravated assault and two counts of homicide.

Lankford was wanted in the Sept. 1 shooting deaths of Melodie Robb and Kimberly Lesko in their Gross Street home.

Miras Kelly II, 19, was also wanted in connection with the shooting but turned himself in to police Sept. 7.

Robb, 52, and Lesko, 55, were pronounced dead at the scene. A third victim was shot but survived, according to police.

Lankford is being held without bail in the Allegheny County Jail.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
