LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Authorities in northeast Arkansas said Friday that an 18-year-old found fatally stabbed this week was a suspect in the shooting of another teen who died last week at the same home.

Paragould Police Cpl. Brad Snyder told The Associated Press that Nicholas Zurosky was listed as a suspect in 18-year-old Lisa Steele's death. Snyder said Zurosky's body was found Thursday at Zurosky's home in Paragould, about 150 miles northeast of Little Rock. Steele was found dead at the same residence last week.

Police said they had four people in custody following Zurosky's death. One is a juvenile being held on a capital murder charge. The other three were arrested on hindering apprehension charges. None had been formally charged as of Friday.
