FAIRBURY, Neb. (AP) — Authorities in southeastern Nebraska have identified a man they say was killed last week near Fairbury; they have also announced the arrests of five people in the homicide case.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said in a news release Thursday that the victim was 28-year-old Marc Jarrell, of Lincoln. His body was found Monday. Officials say he had been shot to death a week earlier at Crystal Springs Park just southwest of Fairbury.

Authorities say over the course of several days, five suspects were arrested on suspicion of various charges in the case. They include 25-year-old Jerry Gilbert, on suspicion of second-degree murder and weapons counts; 21-year-old Caitlyn Grable and 23-year-old Trey Saathoff, both held on suspicion of accessory to second-degree murder and other counts; and 18-year-old Realidy Schram and 20-year-old Logan Evans, both on suspicion of accessory to second-degree murder.
