Murder suspect back in Omaha
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A suspect in an August murder has been extradited back to Omaha, but getting him to the city was not easy.
Wuanya Smith, 20, is accused of killing 20-year-old Anthony Collins III on Aug. 12.
Police said Smith fled the city and was eventually captured in Benton, Ark.
However, Smith escaped while being held in the Saline County, Ark., jail. He was eventually found at a residence in Little Rock.
Smith is expected to face charges of second-degree murder, use of a gun to commit a felony, possession of a gun by a prohibited person, and violation of probation.
He was also booked for an unrelated charge of accessory to a felony, which is related to a 2021 incident in which he allegedly fled from police during an attempted traffic stop.
