Responding to a report of a burglary in progress on Walton Road in Artemus around 2 p.m. Monday, Knox County Sheriff’s Deputy Claude Hudson arrived on the scene and arrested Harvey Cain, 30, of Artemus, and Amy Cain, 24, of Trosper. A third suspect, Josh Reiter, fled into a neighboring house trailer, where he lived.

While searching for Reiter in that home, Deputy Hudson found Felicia West, 37, of Artemus, passed out in a bedroom. Deputy Hudson was unable to awaken her and called Knox County E.M.S., who transported her to the Knox County emergency room, where she was pronounced dead.
