Arrest made in Wisconsin murder mistaken for a hit-and-run

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a suspect in the homicide last month of a 26-year-old man who was killed while running on a southern Wisconsin road.

Dane County sheriff's detectives arrested the 21-year-old Mt. Horeb man on Thursday in the Jan. 15 death of Nicholas Day of Blue Mounds.

Authorities originally believed Day was the victim of a hit-and-run, but an autopsy revealed Day had suffered a gunshot wound and had sustained several cuts to his neck (see related story).

Authorities say the motive for the killing is unclear and they don't know a connection between the victim and the suspect.
