Investigators Make Arrest in 25-Year-Old Neb. Killing

The Associated Press

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 back then.

A cold-case officer received new information about the case in 2003, which led to Walker's arrest, Martinec said.
