A 52-year-old Texas man suspected of killing three family members is in custody in Louisiana.

DeSoto Parish Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle tells The Times Thomas L. Taunton was arrested Thursday at a car dealership in Stonewall, La. Arbuckle says Traunton's truck broke down Wednesday and he returned to the dealership to check on his pickup and trailer.

When he was arrested, sheriff's Lt. Robert Davidson says Taunton told authorities that he didn't know what was going on and that only his personal belongings are in the trailer.

Taunton is being held for the Texas Rangers in connection with the suspected deaths of three people in Fannin County.
