36th and Clarke homicide: Milwaukee man arrested in Iowa

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

Simone Hughes, 47, of Milwaukee, was arrested Wednesday morning, Jan. 19 at a Waterloo, Iowa, home after he held officers at bay for eight hours in sub-zero temperatures, the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reported.

Milwaukee police have said Hughes was wanted on first-degree intentional homicide for the Jan. 6 shooting death of 41-year-old Quinette Walters outside their Milwaukee home. Hughes then shot and injured his 14-year-old daughter as she fled the home, police said. He faces an attempted first-degree murder charge in that shooting.
