HOUSTON (AP) - The U.S. Marshals have arrested a woman considered a suspect in a shooting that killed two police officers and a suspect in Louisiana.
Twenty-six-year-old Tonya Smith was captured Sunday in an RV park near Interstate 10 east of Houston after investigators got a tip on her whereabouts.
Smith was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and is being held in the Harris County Jail awaiting an extradition hearing.
She was wanted in a shooting Friday at a hotel in Bastrop, Louisiana.
Authorities believe the police officers were investigating Smith and another suspect when they were shot.
The suspect was killed in a second volley of shots. The Marshals Service identified him as Dennis Clem, Tonya Smith's boyfriend.
The Marshals had been searching for him since July when he became a suspect in a double homicide in Harris County.
Louisiana authorities say Smith had been linked to a stolen vehicle from Texas found at the Bastrop hotel. She was being sought in connection with a homicide investigation in Harris County.
