SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a suspect in the killing of an elderly Utah couple and the shooting of a woman outside a Nevada casino.

The warrant accuses 24-year-old Logan Welles McFarland of burglarizing the couple's Mount Pleasant home. They were found shot to death Saturday.

Police say a witness told them McFarland bragged at a Friday night party about obtaining money and firearms.

The warrant says McFarland and a woman left in a stolen car for West Wendover, Nev., where police say they shot a woman in the head during a carjacking.

Authorities say McFarland and suspect Angela Atwood were last seen in Nevada driving a stolen gray Volkswagen Jetta with Colorado license plate 725WHX.
