Sheriff's detectives have arrested a Sacramento woman for the attack on an elderly couple which left the husband dead in their home on Routier Road in Rancho Cordova.

Sacramento Sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Bowman said 36-year old Shauna Burton of Sacramento was caught Monday morning just after midnight and is believed to have attacked the couple at the end of a crime spree involving a stolen car and hold up at a CVS pharmacy on Zinfandel Drive, saying,

"We now know she was responsible for that robbery and she was within the stolen car at the time of that felony."

Sgt Bowman said Burton was on parole but couldn't specify for what crimes.

She also said Burton knew the victims and was seen near their home the day of the deadly attack.
