Colorado couple accused of stealing from corpse arrested

HOT SULPHUR SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A couple accused of stealing credit cards, an iPhone and a pistol from a corpse they discovered in western Colorado has been arrested in Washington state.

The Grand County Sheriff's Office reported Saturday that 29-year-old Jerod Morris Reeves and 35-year-old Kimberly Mae McCaffery were taken into custody late Friday in a hotel room in Spokane Valley, Wash. Both are from Craig, Colo.

Police say the pair used a hack saw to cut off the fingers of the dead 62-year-old William Ahrold in order to steal a pistol he was holding.

Authorities say it appears Ahrold killed his 9-year-old son and then himself. Ahrold and his son were last seen Dec. 9. Authorities believe Reeves and McCaffery stumbled on the murder-suicide scene and found the bodies frozen, then stole the valuables.
