Wisconsin man accused of fatal shooting arrested in Waterloo

Simone Hughes is accused of killing his girlfriend and trying to kill his teenage daughter.

WATERLOO, Iowa — A Wisconsin man accused of killing his girlfriend and trying to kill his teenage daughter in a double shooting in Milwaukee has been arrested following an hours-long standoff in northeastern Iowa.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that 47-year-old Simone Hughes, of Milwaukee, was arrested Wednesday morning at a Waterloo home after he held officers at bay for eight hours in sub-zero temperatures. 

Milwaukee police say Hughes was wanted on first-degree intentional homicide for the Jan. 6 shooting death of 41-year-old Quinette Walters outside their Milwaukee home. 

Police say Hughes then shot and injured his 14-year-old daughter as she fled the home.
