Suspect in Nebraska woman’s death arrested in Iowa


NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) — The suspect in the shooting death of a northeast Nebraska woman was arrested hours after the shooting in Sioux City, Iowa, authorities said.

Deshawn Gleaton Jr. is facing a possible first-degree murder charge in the killing of Hailey Christiansen, 29, in Norfolk Friday morning.

He was arrested without incident Friday night, The Norfolk Daily News reported.

Christiansen was found suffering from a gunshot wound at a Norfolk home and died later in surgery. Gleaton had fled before officers arrived.

Gleaton was out of prison on bond on suspicion of third-degree domestic assault and first-degree trespassing at the time, Norfolk Police Chief Don Miller said. Christiansen was the victim in those cases, authorities said.
