A suspect in three Nebraska killings was arrested in Tennessee on Wednesday, authorities said.
John Dalton Jr. was taken into custody without incident along Interstate 40 in Jackson, Tenn., the U.S. Marshals Service told WBBJ-TV. The 46-year-old is wanted for first-degree murder for the shootings.
Authorities named him a person of interest in the case after three people were found dead at an Omaha, Neb., home Tuesday night.
The victims were identified as Dalton’s parents, 70-year-old John Dalton Sr. and 65-year-old Jean Dalton, and his niece Leonna Dalton-Phillip, 18, according to the Omaha World-Herald.
Claude Phillip, the teen’s father, told the newspaper that his daughter was going to her grandparent’s house to pick up her sister and a plate of food after work.
Dalton was also convicted on manslaughter and weapons charges in his wife’s death, which also happened in Tennessee, in 1998.
