Man shot to death in Omaha was acquitted of Iowa slaying

A man who was shot to death in Omaha had been acquitted of first-degree murder in the 2001 death of his girlfriend.

The Omaha World-Herald reports ( ) 40-year-old Carlos A. Alonzo, who was killed early Saturday, was acquitted in 2005 in the death several years earlier of his girlfriend, Teresa Windham.

The 17-year-old Windham disappeared from a Council Bluffs motel where she was staying with Alonzo. Her body was later found near Fremont.

Prosecutors allege Alonzo killed Windham at the motel, but a judge acquitted him of the first-degree murder charge.

Saturday's killing was the 11th homicide in Omaha in 2016.
