He’s been identified as one of the masterminds behind a 2013 home invasion and murder of Shane Jones on Aldrich Street. Four others are also charged in the deadly crime.

ButlerButler, 21 (pictured) , allegedly helped plan the armed robber of the victim and went into Jones’ home before the killers arrived. Later, Butler communicated with the other men using a “mobile electronic device” to provide “tactical and logistical information concerning the planned home invasion,” a warrant says.

At the time of the killing, investigators say the armed suspects came into the home and began shooting. Officers later found the teen’s body inside and an autopsy show he died after being shot multiple times.

A second shooting victim, a female, drove herself to the hospital after being shot in the leg.
