Omaha slaying suspect extradited from Missouri

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a man arrested in Missouri on suspicion of killing a woman in Omaha has been extradited to Nebraska.

Omaha police say 42-year-old Anthony Burries was booked Wednesday into the Douglas County Correctional Center. He was arrested Monday night by officers in Odessa, Missouri.

Burries is charged in a warrant with 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 Omaha 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.
