OMAHA, Nebraska — An Omaha woman has been charged in a second killing in the city, this time of a man whose body was found in a church hall storage shed.
Autumn Acacia-Cortes, 37, was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the death of 53-year-old Francisco Santiago, the Omaha World-Herald reported. Santiago’s body was found Jan. 27 on the property of Our Lady of Guadalupe’s social hall.
Acacia-Cortes was arrested in the case on Friday after she had already been arrested in the killing more than a week earlier of 58-year-old Jose Martinez. Martinez’s body was found Jan. 20 at Highland Tower.
Acacia-Cortes is being held without bail.
