A purse snatching case in Newton led authorities to a mother and son wanted for questioning in a Nebraska homicide investigation.
On Saturday night a woman reported that a man and a woman stole her purse at the Newton Walmart.
The suspects took off in a stolen vehicle but they were caught just outside of town by state troopers.
When they were booked in the Jasper County jail authorities discovered the mother-son duo, Shelley and Andrew Casterline, were wanted for questioning in a homicide investigation in Nebraska.
The Casterlines remain in the Jasper County jail.
