COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.
The Colorado Springs teenager accused of murdering a Fort Carson soldier and the soldier's pregnant wife was captured at an apartment complex Thursday.

Police tracked down Macyo January, 17, at the Vistas at Citadel apartments on east Bijou Street off of Academy Boulevard. January is the only suspect in the killings of 37-year-old David Dunlap and 35-year-old Whitney Butler.

"This case was such a senseless violent crime that it really rocked our detectives to the core," said Colorado Springs police spokesperson Barbara Miller. "They've been working around the clock since Monday to identify the suspect and ultimately arrest him."

Police said Dunlap and Butler were shot to death when they walked in on a burglary at their home on Bassett Drive around noon Monday.
