OMAHA, Neb. — Omaha police say investigators have charged two men with murder in the 2015 shooting death of a woman who was found in a burning house.
The police homicide unit announced Friday that investigators had charged Marcus Short and Preston Pope with first-degree murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony in the death of Deprecia Neelon. Short and Pope, both of whom are 27, were already in custody to face charges in the 2015 death of Garion Johnson.
Neelon was found Aug. 6, 2015, after police and firefighters were called to a house on fire in northeast Omaha. The 23-year-old Neelon was pronounced dead at the scene.
