SEALE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a teenager is charged with killing a man in his home in southeast Alabama, and they're still looking for another person.

Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor says 18-year-old Anthony Lavell Carter of Fort Mitchell is charged with murder in the death of 23-year-old Eric Tunnell Anderson of Seale.

Carter was arrested Friday. Police are still seeking a second suspect who allegedly played video games with the victim.

Taylor says items including a plasma television and video game equipment were missing from Anderson's mobile home, but they were later recovered during a search.

Authorities say Carter denies going into the home or killing the man, but he did tell investigators he was there during a burglary.
