Man arrested in Bardwell triple murder

Posted: Updated:

27 year old Roberto Costilla is being held in the Wayne McCollum Detention Center in Ellis County facing a variety of charges in connection with a triple killing.

Ellis County Sheriff spokesman Jo Ann Livingston says Costilla was arrested early Sunday in the town of Italy.  The arrest came after witnesses to the triple homicide gave police a description of the suspect's vehicle. Livingston says DPS troopers spotted the vehicle. The troopers and Ellis County Sheriff deputies chased the suspect vehicle into Italy. Costilla was taken into custody a short time later.

Deputies were called to a house in Bardwell late Saturday night. When they arrived they found a man and woman dead in the house. Livingston says deputies found a second man in a hallway. That victim was taken to a Dallas hospital where he died.

Bond has been set at one million dollars according to Livingston.

The names of the dead have not yet been released.
