COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP/CBS4) – A murder warrant has been issued for a 17-year-old juvenile police believe killed a soldier from California and his wife.
Colorado Springs police said Thursday that Macyo Joelle January should be considered armed and dangerous.
Authorities said earlier that David Dunlap, 37, of Moorpark, Calif., and Whitney M. Butler, 35, were shot by a burglar when they returned to their home about noon on Monday.
