GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - Police from Spanish Fork, Utah spent some time in Colorado this week in pursuit of a man from their home turf.

Sheriff’s deputies in Grand County, Colorado say they spotted a person of interest connected to a double homicide in Spanish Fork.

Law enforcement says that a 58-year-old man and his 50-year-old wife were found shot to death inside a house after they missed work.

Police spotted a car that matched the description of one missing from the victims house, and the woman’s phone pinged a location in Colorado.

Authorities say that they used those pieces of information to track down the slain couple’s 26-year-old son.

Tryston Robert Erickson was arrested by police shortly after being located and will be extradited to Utah.
