OMAHA, Neb. (AP/KMTV) — Police have made an arrest in the homicide last year of an Omaha woman whose body was found by first responders who were called to the home on a medical emergency.

Police said in a news release that 31-year-old Anthony Triplett was arrested Friday on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of Ebony King.

The 37-year-old Omaha woman was found dead on April 15, 2020, by Omaha firefighters and medics responding to a 911 call by someone who said they were performing CPR on the unresponsive victim.

But responders who arrived on the scene said the woman was already dead, and they summoned police.

Triplett was arrested without incident and booked into Douglas County Corrections.

Friends recalled the 37-year-old King, a mother of three, as a very giving, family-oriented person.
