A 43-year-old man has been arrested in Nebraska on charges he beat a homeless man to death in Iowa.
Police arrested Michael John Thacker in Lincoln.
Thacker is wanted in connection with the death of 34-year-old David Simpson, a homeless man found dead in a grass lot in Council Bluffs, Iowa Monday.
Police charged Thacker with a misdemeanor. He is awaiting transfer to Pottawattamie County in Iowa to face a charge of first-degree murder.
