NEENAH (NBC 26) -- A man arrested in connection to a bar robbery that resulted in a fatal shooting now faces charges of first degree homicide.

In addition to homicide, Casey Cameron has also been charged with armed robbery and first degree recklessly endangering safety.

An arrest warrant was obtained last week for 36-year-old Casey John Cameron. Cameron was taken into custody in connection with the deadly shooting of Kevin “Hollywood” Hein, according to Neenah Police.

Hein was shot at Short Branch Saloon in October.

According to a criminal complaint provided by the Winnebago County District Attorney's Office, investigators received a tip a few days after the robbery that Cameron matched a suspect description. The complaint says Cameron's wife works at Short Branch Saloon.

Investigators conducted surveillance at Cameron's home. According to the complaint, an officer followed Cameron and picked up a cigarette that Cameron discarded out his car window. The complaint says DNA from that cigarette was consistent with DNA found at the crime scene.
