OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Police have arrested a suspect in the slaying of an Omaha man more than 19 years ago.

Christopher Martin, 51, was arrested Tuesday. He's charged with first-degree murder in the Dec. 5, 2000, killing of Todd Schumacher. Douglas County Court records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for Martin.

Schumacher was shot to death at his home, which police said had been burglarized. Martin was one of Schumacher's neighbors at the time.

Police reopened the case at the request of Schumacher's daughter last year.
