COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. A 17-year-old boy wanted after the shooting deaths of a Fort Carson soldier and his wife in Colorado Springs has been arrested.

Police said the boy was arrested without incident Thursday on a first-degree murder warrant.

Police said 37-year-old David Dunlap and his 35-year-old wife, Whitney Butler, were killed Monday when they surprised a burglar in their home.

The Army said Dunlap was a staff sergeant in the 4th Combat Aviation Brigade at Fort Carson outside Colorado Springs. His specialty was repairing armament, electrical and avionic systems on Apache helicopters. He joined the Army in 2003 and arrived at Fort Carson in November.

Dunlap, of Moorpark, Calif., deployed to Iraq in 2007-08.

The Associated Press is not identifying the teen because he is a juvenile and has not been charged.
