OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- A man was arrested in Colorado this week in
connection with a double homicide 25 years ago, Omaha police said.
Police spokeswoman Cathy Martinec said Louis M. Walker, also known as
Abdul Malik Husain, 46, was arrested in Aurora, Colo., Tuesday in the
deaths of Deroshia Matthews and her son Kamal.
The bodies of Matthews, 26, and Kamal, 7, were found by family
members after they had not been seen for a day. An autopsy revealed
that Matthews had been strangled and suffocated. Kamal was strangled.
Martinec said police identified a possible suspect after a thorough
investigation, but did not have enough information to make an arrest
A cold-case officer received new information about the case in 2003,
which led to Walker's arrest, Martinec said.

back to Omaha possibly later this week, she said.
