The man arrested Monday in connection with the death of a man found last month at the Omaha headquarters of the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club was charged Wednesday morning with second-degree murder, use of a weapon to commit a felony and possession of a weapon by a felon.
Forty-eight-year-old Jay Witt was denied bond and will be back in court on September 16th. He is a suspect in the death of 48-year-old William Furlong, whose body was found at 27th and J streets on July 14th.
Prosecutors said Witt and Furlong had been in an altercation when Witt allegedly shot Furlong. They also claim that Witt tried to cover up the murder by making it appear as if a rival gang was responsible.
Dakota County, Nebraska Sheriff Chris Kleinberg said a report came into his office around 8 a.m. Monday regarding a stolen vehicle. Investigators found it could be tracked by GPS, which led Omaha police to Witt at 30th Street and Sorensen Parkway. Witt was armed, but surrendered without incident.
