New Castle County police say they've arrested a second person over a suspected hate crime in which a cross made of PVC pipe was planted in a man's yard with racial slurs written across it.

Detectives arrested the 15-year-old boy Tuesday. Police say he's been charged with second-degree conspiracy, harassment and a hate crime. Previously arrested was a 16-year-old boy who was charged with harassment and hate crime.

The cross was found shortly after noon Monday in Delaplane Manor.
