OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Omaha police say they booked Marvin Young, 37, for First Degree Murder in connection with the death of Camisha Hollis.

Hollis hasn't been seen since April, 2018. She was 34 when she disappeared.

Police arrested Young in 2018 on charges of three counts of Child Abuse By Neglect - No Serious Injury, three counts of Domestic Disturbing the Peace and Criminal Mischief Under $500 for damage to an Omaha Police Department interview room.

Young's bond remains $500,000.

Young was Camisha Hollis's boyfriend.

Investigators say he gave their three children a sleeping aid on the night Hollis was last seen.

Their oldest daughter told police she heard her parents arguing, before Young allegedly hit her Mom with a boot.

Authorities say they found her blood and two spent shell casings inside the house at 57th and Hartman.

Family, friends and volunteers searched in both Nebraska and Iowa for Hollis ever since she disappeared, but never found her.
