TUCSON, Ariz. -- Three people arrested in Nevada in connection with the deaths of an elderly couple in Tucson have been returned to southern Arizona and booked into jail.

The Pima County Attorney's Office says 20-year-old Kyle A. Drattlo, 23-year-old Christopher E. Terry and 21-year-old Brianna Harding will be arraigned soon and formally charged in the case.

Prosecutors say the three suspects are expected to face multiple felony charges including first-degree murder.

The bodies of 87-year-old Erskin Fulgham and 84-year-old Mary Fulgham were discovered July 23 in their Tucson home.

Court documents show a knife was used to kill the couple.

Authorities say Drattlo, Terry and Harding were found in the Fulgham's stolen car the following day in Nevada and arrested.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that Drattlo is the Fulghams' grandson.
