STERLING, Colo. — Authorities from Colorado and Nebraska joined last week in arresting a suspect in two East Coast homicides near the northwest end of Lake McConaughy.

Luis Carranza-Andrade was arrested without incident at Lake Mac’s Marina Landing based on a tip from federal authorities, the Logan County Sheriff’s Office in Sterling said on its Facebook page.

Marina Landing, five miles east of Lewellen, is a Keith County development along Nebraska Highway 92 near the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Omaha Beach area.
