Waterloo Woman Accused of Killing her Cousin Caught in VA

A Waterloo woman sought in the slaying of her cousin has been taken into custody in eastern Virginia.

Iowa authorities say 22-year-old Danaesha Martin was detained yesterday(Tue) in Norfolk, on an Iowa warrant for first-degree murder.

Authorities say she played a role in the May 31st shooting death of 22-year-old Shavondes Martin. He’d been acquitted in February of shooting to death Otavious Brown.

Shavondes Martin’s mother, Diane Martin , was shot to death in her Waterloo home in September. Authorities are saying that, for now, the slayings of Diane and Shavondes Martin don’t appear to be related.
