OMAHA, Neb. — A second man has been charged with killing a U.S. Army soldier who was visiting Omaha relatives for the holidays.

Police said in a news release Friday that 35-year-old Jason Devers was arrested Thursday. Court records say he's charged with first-degree murder. The records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for him.

Twenty-seven-year-old Larry Goynes was arrested Jan. 12 and faces the same charge. His attorney, Stu Dornan, says Goynes will plead not guilty.

Devers and Goynes are suspected of shooting to death 27-year-old Kyle LeFlore outside the Reign Lounge early on Jan. 6.
