FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) — Fort Carson is holding a memorial service for Staff Sgt. David C. Dunlap, who was killed along with his wife during a burglary at their home off post.

The service will be held Wednesday at Provider Chapel at Fort Carson, just outside Colorado Springs.

Colorado Springs Police say Dunlap and his wife, Whitney M. Butler, were shot and killed Jan. 14 when they surprised a burglar in their home.

A 17-year-old male has been arrested on suspicion of murder and a 19-year-old on suspicion of being an accessory to murder.

Neighbors say the couple moved to Colorado Springs in October. Dunlap’s military specialty was helicopter repair and he arrived at Fort Carson to be part of a new combat aviation brigade.

The Army lists Dunlap’s home as Moorpark, Calif.
