DENVER (AP) - Authorities say a man suspected of killing three people and setting fire to a home in southern Colorado has been captured in Oklahoma after a nationwide manhunt.

Sheriff Kirk Taylor of Pueblo County, Colo., said Sunday that 59-year-old Harry Carl Mapps was captured at a motel in Roland, Okla., Saturday night. No other details were released.

Mapps was wanted on charges of fatally shooting 55-year-old Kim Tuttle, her 51-year-old husband, Reggie Tuttle and their 33-year-old daughter, Dawn Roderick. Their bodies were found in the Tuttles' home in Rye after the house burned on Nov. 27.

The fire was ruled arson.

The U.S. Marshals Service issued a fugitive warrant for Mapps and said authorities were searching for him around the country.
