TUCSON, Ariz. -- Authorities say three suspects have been arrested in the deaths of an elderly married couple in Tucson.

Tucson police say the bodies of 87-year-old Erskin Fulgham and 84-year-old Mary Fulgham were discovered Tuesday in their midtown Tucson home and had obvious signs of trauma.

The couple's stolen vehicle was found Wednesday night in Nevada and three occupants were detained and interviewed.

The two men and one woman were booked Thursday into Nevada's Nye County Jail. Pima County authorities are working to extradite the three suspects to Tucson.

Police say 20-year-old Kyle A. Drattlo, 20-year-old Christopher E. Terry and 21-year-old Brianna Harding each are being held on suspicion of two counts of first-degree murder.

They also are facing charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, burglary, armed robbery and aggravated robbery.
