UPDATE: A woman was arrested on investigation of murder after two bodies were found in a mobile home on the eastern side of Colorado Springs.

Donna Kaiser-Anderson, 57, was booked into the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center on suspicion of second degree murder. She was being held in lieu of $250,000 bail.

The identity of the victims have not been released, pending notification of the next of kin. Officials did not release information on possible motives.

ORIGINAL STORY:

El Paso County Sheriff's Office deputies are investigating the suspicious deaths of a man and a woman whose bodies were found Friday afternoon in a mobile home near Western Drive.

They were the husband and the mother of the woman who also lives in the mobile home, said Lt. Jeff Kramer, a sheriff's office spokesman. The woman was taken into custody as a primary suspect in the case, Kramer said, but it was unclear around 7 p.m. on Friday what charges she might face.

The woman's name will not be released unless she is arrested and booked into the El Paso County jail, Kramer said.

The bodies were discovered after deputies traced the trajectory of a stray bullet that struck a neighboring mobile home in the Springs Mobile Home Park at 1095 Western Drive, said Kramer. 

A man had called deputies about 1:30 p.m. when he discovered a bullet hole in the side of his home. Investigators surmised that the bullet would have come from a neighboring home on J Street.

Investigators knocked on the door of the  home, but when no one answered they managed to contact a woman who lives there. The woman let detectives inside, where they found the bodies of a man and a woman in a room.

Kramer did not say what sort of injuries they had sustained, nor did he know their manner of death.

After questioning the woman, detectives believe that the victims could have been dead for more than a day.

All three people lived in the home. The male victim, the woman's husband, traveled frequently for his job, and was home only some of the time, Kramer said.

On Friday night detectives had blocked several streets within the maze-like mobile home community. Kramer expected investigators to be on scene into the night.
