A man is accused of murdering a 41-year-old man and wounding another in Marquette Park last spring.

Roosevelt Washington, who works for the anti-violence group CeaseFire, is charged with killing Alonzo Bellamy, Cook County prosecutors said Wednesday.

A judge ordered Washington, 34, held without bail.

Washington allegedly shot Bellamy and a 31-year-old man on April 19 when the pair were hanging out and walking a dog in the 6600 block of South Washtenaw Avenue, prosecutors said.

Bellamy was shot 13 times, prosecutors said.

Washington is expected back in court on Aug. 10.
