COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Three people have been arrested in connection with the shooting death of a Colorado Springs-area man, including the victim's wife and daughter.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office says 47-year-old Miguel Barajas' daughter called 911 on Feb. 13 after she said she arrived and found the door to the man's Widefield home open.

The Gazette reports deputies arrested the daughter - 33-year-old Dawn Richburg - and 52-year-old Sandra Barajas - the man's wife - Saturday. Meanwhile, 34-year-old Tommy Wright - described as an acquaintance of the women - was tracked down in Douglas County, where he was jailed on an unrelated charge.

All three are being held on suspicion of murder, conspiracy to commit murder and solicitation of murder.

Detectives haven't said what led them to suspect the trio.
