Man arrested in connection with Colorado triple homicide

By  | 

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man accused of shooting three people to death in a Colorado home where more than 100 marijuana plants were being grown.

Boulder County sheriff's officials say 24-year-old Garrett Coughlin, of Lakewood, was arrested Tuesday on charges that include first-degree murder and robbery. He is due in court Wednesday.

The bodies of 54-year-old Wallace White, 56-year-old Kelly Sloat-White and 39-year-old Emory Fraker were found in the home southwest of Boulder on April 15. An arrest affidavit says that after the slayings, Coughlin traveled out of state to his cousin's home, where he left a gun that was later linked to the crime scene. Witnesses also saw him with large amounts of packaged marijuana.

Booking documents do not indicate if Coughlin has hired an attorney.
