ALGONQUIN, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago woman has been arrested in Colorado in connection with the slayings of a couple she reportedly lived with.

The McHenry County Coroner’s Office has identified the victims as Leonard J. Gilard Jr., 73, and Noreen S. Gilard, 69, both of Algonquin.

They were found dead in their home Sunday evening, the Algonquin Police Department said.

“Both suffered apparent fatal wounds and an autopsy is scheduled for both victims,” police said in a news release.

Arin M. Fox, 39, of Algonquin, was charged with four counts of first-degree murder, two counts of possession of stolen motor vehicle and one count each of aggravated battery and domestic battery, police said.

Fox fled to Colorado and is currently being detained in the Douglas County, Colorado, Detention Center, awaiting extradition, police said.

The slayings appear to be domestic in nature, police said.

Police did not disclose Fox’s relationship to the victims. WBBM-TV reported Fox lived with the couple and is a friend or girlfriend of their son.
