Omaha slaying suspect arrested in Missouri

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a man sought in the slaying of a woman at a west Omaha apartment has been arrested in Missouri.

Police say 42-year-old Anthony Burries was taken into custody by officers in Odessa, Missouri, on Monday evening. He awaits extradition to Omaha. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney in the case.

A warrant for Burries' arrest was issued earlier Monday. It said the charge was first-degree murder. He's accused of killing 38-year-old Tina Hoult, with whom he'd had a relationship. Her body was found Sunday morning in her apartment after officers were sent to check on her well-being.

Court records say Burries has a prison record for theft and firearms violations and for domestic abuse in assaulting Hoult in December 2012.
