Dawnn Jaffier was killed last August as she made her way to a city Caribbean festival and parade.

The alleged shooter has already been arrested and is being held without bail.

The Suffolk district attorney's office says 22-year-old Wesson Cole, of Boston, is facing first-degree murder charges for allegedly starting the chain of events that led to the 26-year-old Jaffier's death.

Twenty-two-year-old Jordan Reed, of Randolph, faces accessory charges for allegedly trying to dispose of the weapon.

Both face arraignment Monday. It could not be determined if they had lawyers.
