A New Orleans man is facing murder charges for the death of a young gamer whose funeral photos went viral last summer.

Renard Matthews was shot in the head while walking his dog in the Florida neighborhood last June. At his funeral, his family dressed his body in a Celtics jersey and placed him propped up in a computer chair appearing to play a video game, surrounded by his favorite snacks.

Police arrested Jonovan Parker over the weekend and charged him with second-degree murder in the case. Investigators haven't commented on what may have been the motive.
