Second Person Arrested in Traer Man’s Murder

Danker Arrested in Cedar Rapids

A second suspect is in custody at the Tama County Jail for a murder that happened nearly three years ago. 27-year old Huston Danker was arrested in Cedar Rapids Monday for allegedly playing a part in the death of Ryan Cooper on June 18, 2021. Danker’s arrest came two months after Cooper’s wife Karina was arrested and charged in his murder. Investigators said they found Karina sitting on top of her husband’s body that night, and witnesses told investigators she had talked about wanting Cooper dead, the way she described killing him was how he was found. Karina Cooper pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges in March. Her trial will be held in Linn Co. in July.
