FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - A homeless Fort Wayne man is behind bars for a second time in connection to the murder of a North Side High School coach.

Terrance Miles was shot and killed outside the East Central Towers on Francis Street May 19, 2017.

Thursday, police arrested Henry E. Underwood during a traffic stop after a warrant was issued earlier this week.

Charges against Underwood were filed after Jaevin E. Bowie pleaded guilty to lesser charges.

Both were arrested last year after surveillance video of the shooting was released, but no charges were ever filed.

Court documents unsealed Thursday state Bowie will cooperate with prosecutors in the Underwood case.

Those documents say Bowie told police he and Underwood were going through a car in the parking lot of the apartments when Miles was taking out his trash.

Bowie told detectives Underwood attempted to rob Miles when Underwood shot him.

Miles' family told FOX 55 Thursday they're glad the accused killer is off the streets, but they are still grieving his death.

Bowie could face up to 8 1/2 years in prison.

Underwood is being held without bond.
