Thursday, January 17, 2013 6:30 PM [RELEASE AT WILL]


Last night, investigators obtained an arrest warrant for 1st degree Murder for 17 year old, Macyo Joelle January. 


January was considered armed and dangerous following the murders of 37 year old Fort Carson soldier, David Dunlap and his wife, 35 year old Whitney Butler.  Both were shot to death as they entered their home during a burglary in progress on Monday.


As with every death investigation, detectives worked around the clock actively seeking critical information, checking every tip and pursuing every lead.


Their exhaustive efforts resulted in the arrest of Macyo January earlier this evening.  He was found at a residence in the 3900 block of E. Bijou Street and taken into custody without incident.
