LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 49-year-old man is suspected of beating to death Lincoln man who'd been dating the same woman.

Lincoln police arrested the man Sunday on suspicion of manslaughter. Court records don't yet show that he's been formally charged.

He's suspected of killing Jonathan Olson, 44, last fall. Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said Olson and the man had been in relationships with the same woman and that Olson had gone to the man's home Oct. 11 to retrieve personal property. The man assaulted Olson that day, witnesses said.

Olson died at a Lincoln hospital six days later.

All 27 Nebraska bridges damaged by 2019 flooding now open

HADAR, Neb. (AP) - All the bridges damaged during last spring's massive flooding in Nebraska have now been reopened.

The Nebraska Department of Transportation said the Nebraska 13 bridge near Hadar in northeast Nebraska reopened Friday. The bridge about four miles north of Norfolk was the final one of 27 bridges damaged during last spring's flooding to reopen.

The flooding last March caused the closure of 3,300 miles of highway in Nebraska. All of the highways affected by the flooding have been reopened.

The Transportation Department says it spent $2.8 million to replace the Hadar bridge.
