BURLINGTON, Colo. (AP) — Authorities investigating the death of a veterinarian in Burlington say her stepson and another man are suspected of killing the woman and stealing items from her home.

Police say 50-old Cynthia Campbell Eason was killed Friday in her home in the city of about 4,000 people near the Kansas border.

In a statement, police say 19-year-old Dylan Eason and 24-year-old Isaiah Churchwell were arrested on a tip a few hours after the investigation. Police haven’t released any other details about Eason’s death and referred questions about it to prosecutors on Monday.

Dylan Eason and Churchwell are being held in jail and it’s not clear if they have lawyers yet. They are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
