WELD COUNTY, Colo. – A 53-year-old man has been arrested after deputies found two people dead inside of a Weld County home this week.

William Roberts faces two counts of first-degree murder, according to the sheriff's office. Deputies had responded about 7:40 p.m. Thursday to a well-being check at a home in the 11000 block of County Road 6, in southern Weld County. They found two bodies inside the home.

The sheriff's office on Friday was seeking Roberts as a "possible witness," according to a news release, before he was arrested as a suspect.

Roberts was in custody Sunday at the Weld County Jail. More information about the case hasn't been released.

Anyone with information about the deaths is asked to call the Weld County Sheriff's Office at 970-356-4015 or Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Tips can also be submitted online at
