New arrests have been made in connection to the slaying of a US Army soldier who was visiting Omaha relatives for the holidays.

Police have booked 44-year-old Latiba Lemon on suspicion of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, along with an unidentified 21-year-old booked on suspicion of making terroristic threats, according to the Associated Press.

The arrests surround the January 6 killing of Kyle LeFlore, a 27-year-old Army Staff Sergeant who was fatally shot outside of a night club in Omaha after attending an “Urban Professionals and Business Owners Networking Night Out” event.

In February, Shydale Glass, 20, was charged with being an accessory to a felony and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. He is accused of hiding a gun used to fatally shoot Kyle Leflore in the early hours of the morning at Reign Lounge on January 6.

Other individuals were charged in the case as well, including 27-year-old Larry Goynes and 35-year-old Jason Devers, both charged with first-degree murder.

A Nebraska native, LeFlore was an avid grappler and a respected member of both the US Army and his local community. Facing a reassignment from Korea to Arizona and with two Afghanistan tours under his belt, LeFlore had plans of becoming an FBI Special Agent after he finished his term of service.

In order to honor his memory, over 200 people gathered outside of the LeFlore family business to release balloons, a tribute to a man taken well before his time.
