Man In Custody After Murders Of 2 Women In Yuma County

WRAY, Colo. (AP) – A 30-year-old man is facing murder charges after two women were found dead in a home on Colorado’s Eastern Plains.

The Yuma County sheriff’s office identified the suspect Tuesday as Tyler Withrow. Authorities say he was arrested Monday after deputies responded to a 911 hang up call in the town of Kirk. Authorities say Withrow was found there along with the bodies of two women.

Authorities believe the three are related.

Withrow was being held at the Yuma County jail. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

The sheriff’s office said the Colorado Bureau of Investigation is helping collect evidence at the home.

The office said it can’t release any more information because the district’s chief judge has issued a gag order.
