SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police in Colorado said Wednesday they will seek murder charges against an ex-convict suspected of killing a man, stealing guns from his trailer, then heading to Utah with his wife and fatally shooting a student during an attempted carjacking.

Austin Boutain and his wife, Kathleen Boutain, were both named as suspects in the death of 63-year-old Mitchell Ingle, whose body was found in his trailer Tuesday, in Golden, Colorado, police spokeswoman Karlyn Tilley said in a statement.

Investigators believe the Boutains met Ingle only a few days before his death, describing their encounters as “chance meetings” at a creek near Ingle’s trailer home.

Authorities also plan to recommend a murder charge against Kathleen Boutain.
