Authorities Make Arrest In Marquette Murder Investigation

The Nebraska State Patrol and Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office have arrested a man after a homicide that occurred in Marquette.

The investigation began Sunday, when the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call at a residence of 502 Carnahan Street in Marquette. Inside the home, the Sheriff’s Office located a deceased woman, identified as 49-year-old Angela Adams. Investigators learned that Adams had been with her husband, Jeffrey Adams, Saturday evening, but he was not at the home when authorities arrived to investigate the incident. A short time later, Jeffrey Adams arrived at the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office to turn himself in. He was arrested by Nebraska State Patrol investigators. Investigators have determined that the incident began with an argument, during which Jeffrey Adams struck Angela Adams multiple times. Jeffrey Adams then left the home.

The 47-year-old was arrested for second degree murder. The investigation remains ongoing.
