LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force arrested a Florida couple, 34-year-old Kenneth Ellis and 27-year-old Rachael Schemenauer, on Oct. 10 in the Las Vegas area.

The couple were wanted on burglary charges and the police are also interested in talking to them about a suspicious death of a man on Sept. 27 in Tarpon Springs, which is near Tampa.

The U.S. Marshals in Florida learned that the couple may have fled to Las Vegas and requested local assistance. The couple were found at a campsite near Red Rock Canyon. The woman was arrested at the campsite, but the man took off.

Ellis lost control of his vehicle and flipped the vehicle on State Route 159.

Ellis and Schemenauer have been booked into the Clark County Detention Center pending extradition.
