James Young, 43, turned himself in to the Craighead County Sheriff's Department late this morning.  Young faces charges of aggravated assault for his role in an incident in which his sister was shot on May 31 at a residence in north Jonesboro.

Ruby Stein was wounded in the neck in the fray between Smith and another man, whom police are also searching for.  Stein was treated and released from a Jonesboro hospital.

Meanwhile, police have not yet released the name of the second suspect.   According to Jonesboro Police Department spokesman Sgt. Steve McDaniel, there is still "a lot developing" on the case.
