LONDON (AP) -- Police say they have charged a 22-year-old man with murdering a British soldier last week in a brazen attack in broad daylight.

Police said late Wednesday that Michael Adebowale was charged with Lee Rigby's murder and with possession of a gun. He will appear in court on Thursday.

Rigby, 25, was struck by a car and then stabbed by two men near his barracks in southeast London. An autopsy showed he died from multiple cuts and stab wounds after he was hit, police said Wednesday.
