A 23-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of killing man whose body was found in a rural area north of Lincoln.

Authorities say Miguel Castillo, of Lincoln, was arrested Tuesday afternoon. He’s suspected of killing 25-year-old Tyler Schoenrock, also of Lincoln. Schoenrock’s bullet-riddled body was found early Sunday morning by a newspaper carrier.

Investigators say several shell casings were found near Schoenrock’s body.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner wouldn’t say what led to Castillo’s arrest after a traffic stop.

A Lancaster County jailer said Castillo remained in custody on Thursday. Online court records don’t list the name of Castillo’s attorney.
