Pueblo fugitive captured in Nebraska

A suspect wanted for the murder of a Pueblo man last month has been arrested in Nebraska.

On Wednesday, the Norfolk Nebraska Police Department arrested Jayson Oslund, 28, for first degree murder. Oslund is suspected in the beating death of 18-year old Matt Maez of Pueblo.

The attack happened in a field on Pueblo's east side on September 5. The men were at a party at a home near Jolpin and Fir St. Pueblo police say Maez took something from the car of Olsund's brother Kelly. The Oslund brothers reportedly chased Maez into a field and later returned to the party bragging about beating Maez.

"One of the witness told us that Jayson was carrying a large stick, what looked like a club," said Sgt. Eric Bravo told News First 5.

Maez was taken to the hospital and died several days later.

According to Pueblo Police, detectives in Norfolk got a Crime Stoppers tip that lead to Jayson Olsund's arrest.
