Michael Adebolajo, 28, was charged Saturday with the murder of Lee Rigby, the Metropolitan Police said.
Adebolajo was also charged with the attempted murder of two police officers and with possession of a firearm.
The suspect has been remanded in custody to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on June 3, police said. He was released from a hospital Friday after treatment for injuries suffered in the attack that took place in Woolwich.
On Wednesday, another suspect, Michael Adebowale, 22, of Greenwich was also charged with the May 22 murder.
Rigby, 25, a drummer in the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, was slain as he walked near a military barracks in Woolwich, southeast London, last week.
He left behind a wife and a 2-year-old son. He was a native of Manchester, UK, and joined the military in 2006.
