Suspect in triple slayings returned to Colorado

PUEBLO, Colo. - A fugitive arrested in Oklahoma has been returned to Colorado to face charges of killing three people and setting fire to their house to cover it up.

According to KRDO-TV (http://ch7ne.ws/1g4uGH3), Harry Carl Mapps was being held in Pueblo County Jail's maximum security unit Thursday with no bond.

Mapps was arrested at a motel in Roland, Okla., Saturday night after a month-long search.

He faces charges of first-degree murder and arson in the shooting deaths of 55-year-old Kim Tuttle, her 51-year-old husband, Reggie, and their 33-year-old daughter, Dawn Roderick. Investigators said Mapps shot the victims and then set the home they were in on fire.

Authorities say Mapps had been living with the Tuttles and was working for a trucking company owned by Reggie Tuttle.

If Mapps is convicted, the victims' family told KRDO they don't care what happens to him.

"If it cost him his life, it cost him his life. If he lives the rest of his life in prison, so be it," said Mark Roderick, whose wife, Dawn, was murdered.
