Man arrested in 2 Georgia slayings

SAVANNAH — Authorities have arrested a man sought in two homicides in the past week in Savannah.

Federal marshals arrested Dwayne Greene early Sunday without incident.

Police say 33-year-old Freddie Jackson was shot outside an apartment Tuesday afternoon, and 48-year-old Laura Dowdy was shot at her home early Saturday.

Dowdy lived near the spot where Jackson was killed. Police say an investigation showed Jackson’s death was linked to a drug deal, and the woman’s killing was related to Jackson’s killing.

Greene is being held in the Chatham County jail.
