RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities in Northern California say one arrest has made following an attack that left an elderly man dead and his wife in critical condition.

Sacramento County Sheriff's spokeswoman Sgt. Lisa Bowman says 36-year-old Shauna Burton of Sacramento was arrested early Monday in connection with Sunday's attack inside a mobile home in Rancho Cordova.

Bowman says in addition to possible murder charges, Burton is also being held for allegedly stealing a car and robbing a pharmacy early Sunday morning.

Authorities were called out to the mobile home community shortly before noon Sunday after a neighbor found the elderly couple hurt inside their home.

The names of the couple, who are both 78-years-old, have not officially been released.

Bowman says Burton was an acquaintance of the couple as investigators are still working to determine a motive.
