Nebraska State Patrol: Suspect linked to 4 deaths arrested
LAUREL, Neb. (AP) — Police investigating the killings of four people in a small northeast Nebraska city have arrested a neighbor of the victims.
The Nebraska State Patrol said a police team surrounded then entered a home in Laurel about 2:30 a.m. Friday after gathering evidence at two burned houses where the four bodies were found Thursday morning.
The Nebraska State Patrol arrested 42-year-old Jason A. Jones, of Laurel on suspicion of homicide. He had been badly burned and was taken to a hospital in Lincoln so has not been formally charged.
Those killed were identified as 86-year-old Gene Twiford, 85-year-old Janet Twiford, 55-year-old Dana Twiford and 53-year-old Michele Ebeling.
