Woman's body found in ravine near Fremont; man arrested

(MGN)

Authorities say a man paroled in June is suspected of killing an Omaha woman and dumping her body in a ravine near Fremont.

Omaha police say 39-year-old Jeremiah Connelly was arrested Friday after a foot chase that began when he ran from a stolen car he was driving.

Officers say he spoke to them about the death of a woman, and investigators later found the body of 22-year-old Jeanna Wilcoxen. She'd last been seen Sept. 17.

Court records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for Connelly. He'd been serving time in prison for attempted kidnapping, robbery and other crimes before being released June 28.
