COLORADO SPRINGS, 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.

Harry Carl Mapps was being held in Pueblo County Jail Thursday with no bond.

Mapps was arrested at a motel in Roland, Okla., Saturday night after a monthlong 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.

Their bodies were found in the Tuttles' home in the small Colorado town of Rye after it was damaged by fire on Nov. 27.

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