Harry Mapps, a former handyman suspected in the deaths of three people, has been captured in Roland, Oklahoma. Authorities arrested Mapps at a hotel near Interstate 40, according to the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office.

Mapps, 59, was wanted on first-degree murder charges in the shooting deaths of three people who lived in Rye, Colorado November 27. He is also accused of arson as investigators believe he set fire to his victims' home in an attempt to cover up the shootings.

Reginald Tuttle, 51, Kim Tuttle, 55, and their daughter Dawn Roderick, 33, were all killed.

Mapps will be brought to Pueblo, Colorado to face charges, according to Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor.

The arrest was made the evening of Saturday, December 28 by U.S. Marshals, officers from the Eastern District of Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Roland Police Department, according to PCSO.
