Police say suspects arrested in Utah double killing, Nevada casino carjacking, shooting
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) ' Authorities say they've arrested a pair of suspects in the killing of an elderly Utah couple and the shooting of a woman outside a Nevada casino.
Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Jim Phelps tells The Associated Press that 24-year-old Logan Welles McFarland and Angela Atwood were arrested Tuesday in Nevada.
Authorities earlier on Tuesday issued an arrest warrant for McFarland accusing him of burglarizing the couple's Mount Pleasant home. They were found shot to death Saturday.
The warrant says McFarland and a woman left in a stolen car for West Wendover, Nev., where police say they shot a woman in the head during a carjacking. The pair then outran police in a high-speed chase in Nevada and disappeared.
