Former U.P. resident arrested for killing three people


KINGSFORD, MI (AP)--   A man who grew up in the Upper Peninsula has been arrested in the killing of three people in Colorado. 

Harry C. Mapps, 59, was arrested in Oklahoma after a month-long search and is awaiting his return to Colorado to face first-degree murder charges. The sheriff of Pueblo County, Colorado said Mapps set fire to the victims' house November 27 to cover up the killings.

The attack claimed the lives of Kim and Reggie Tuttle and their adult daughter, Dawn Roderick.

Mapps waived his right to an extradition hearing Monday before a judge in eastern Oklahoma's Sequoyah County, about 700 miles from the crime scene.

The Iron Mountain Daily News said Mapps is a former resident of Kingsford and graduated from Kingsford High School in 1972.
