Man wanted in South Dakota slayings arrested in Nebraska

SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (AP) - Authorities in northeast Nebraska have arrested a man suspected in two South Dakota slayings.

Police say Manuel Frias was taken into custody a little before 10 p.m. Tuesday in South Sioux City, following a brief standoff. South Sioux City Police Chief Ed Mahon says the U.S. Marshals Service notified his department just after 6:30 p.m. that Frias was in the South Sioux City home.

Authorities say Frias is wanted in the Jan. 5 shooting deaths of 28-year-old Samuel Crockett and 30-year-old Corey Zephier. Police say the drug-related slayings occurred outside a Sioux Falls apartment building.

It's unclear whether Frias has an attorney who could comment for him. Two other suspects already have been arrested.
