A man police say is responsible for killing two people outside an Omaha motel has been arrested in Dallas.
John L. Parks Sr., 38, was taken into custody Wednesday by the Dallas Area Task Force and U.S. marshals. The Omaha Metro Area Fugitive Task Force coordinated with the agencies on the arrest.
Parks was charged in a warrant with two counts of first-degree murder and three weapons charges in the July 30 slayings of two people in Omaha.
Michael Harbour, 35, and Nicole Hatten, 36, were found dead on the west side of the Best Western Plus at 4706 S. 108th St. on July 30.
A clerk who answered the phone at Best Western said at the time that the two were guests at the motel.
Parks is the father of John Parks Jr., 20, who was fatally shot July 26 near 53rd and Boyd Streets.
Police are still investigating the slaying of John Parks Jr. and haven’t arrested anyone in the case. However, police said Wednesday that detectives don’t think Harbour and Hatten had anything to do with John Parks Jr.’s death.
