Two suspects arrested in death of 85-year-old man in Adams County.

Two suspects have been arrested in connection to the death of an 85-year-old man whose body was found in his Adams County residence.

Joshua Stephen Miles, 29, and Kyli Leanne Ferguson, 28, are being held at the Adams County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder according to the sheriff’s office.

On Dec. 29, deputies responded to the 8800 block of Wagner Street on a report of a suspicious death, according to a news release. The man had suffered “visible physical injuries” and items were missing from his home including a vehicle.

On Thursday Northglenn police found the stolen vehicle in an apartment complex, 11501 Washington St., the release said. Investigators developed suspect information, and a search warrant was executed at the complex where evidence was collected. The victim’s name has not been released.

Evidence in the case led detectives to a hotel in Thornton, in the area of East 120th Avenue and Grant Street, where the suspects were arrested early Friday morning.

The pair are also being investigated on suspicion of burglary, assault, crime against an at-risk adult, and aggravated motor-vehicle theft among other charges.
