SANTA FE, N.M. — State Police have arrested in New Mexico’s capital city a father and his 13-year-old son who were wanted for first-degree murder in Colorado, the Albuquerque Journal reports .

The State Police says Heith Gleason, 35, and his son were taken into custody on Thursday after officers received a tip from the Huerfano County Sheriff’s Department in southern Colorado that the two would be there.

The Journal reports that the pair have been charged with the murder of 41-year-old Amy Garcia of Walsenburg, Colorado, according to an arrest warrant affidavit filed in Santa Fe Magistrate Court. Huerfano County deputies found Garcia dead in a burned-out car outside of the Gleasons’ home in rural Huerfano County Thursday morning.

The newspaper says it’s not clear from the affidavit what relationship Garcia had to Gleason and his son.
