Omaha police arrest 2 men in separate homicides

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Omaha police have arrested two men including a Northwest High football player in connection with two separate homicides.

Police say they arrested 18-year-old Mitchell Wynne and charged him with first-degree murder. He's alleged to have shot Darnell Haynes on July 14.

According to reports, Wynne, a high school senior, was arrested Friday afternoon at a residence.

Police Capt. Kerry Neumann says Wynne and Haynes were acquaintances.

The case was not yet entered into court records and it wasn't apparent whether he had an attorney.

In a separate case, police arrested 35-year old John R. Moniz Friday and charged him with first-degree murder in the slaying of Delbert Freemont Jr. whose body was found Dec. 9.

Court records did not show an attorney yet assigned to his case.
