ELKO COUNTY, Nev. – The Elko County Sheriffs Department, along with the U.S. Marshall’s Office, apprehended a couple wanted for murder, carjacking, and use of a stolen credit card. Logan Welles McFarland, 24, and Angela Marie Hill, 25, also known as Angela Atwood, are accused of killing an elderly couple in Mt. Pleasant.
A bolo of the carjacked vehicles license plate had been released by police hoping it would help in finding the suspects. The police had chased the couple once, but lost them when they turned onto a dirt road near the states border. They were arrested in a very rural area of the state.
