A Lansing man is once again facing a murder charge due to new evidence on YouTube.

19-year-old Nicholas Brown was ordered to stand trial Thursday in the shooting death of 19-year-old Shayla Johnson.

She was shot and killed last July, and Brown was one of the men intially arrested.

Charges were dropped against him last fall due to lack of evidence, but charges were reinstated after a detective testified that Brown was in a YouTube video bragging about the shooting.

The detective says he mentions details of the crime and bragged that his gang didn't talk to police.

A total of six people, including a 14-year-old boy, will stand trial in connection with Johnson's death.
