HOUSTON—Police have captured a man suspected of killing his mother and sister in Spring. Mark Gideon was found in east Houston Friday night.

Gideon is officially charged with capital murder in the deaths of his 75-year-old mother Margaret and 52-year-old sister Vonda who were found dead inside their home on Thursday.

Gideon did not appear in court for a probable cause reading, because he is still in the hospital.

Investigators said the women had been dead at least a week. They had trauma to their bodies, but were so badly decomposed, investigators couldn’t immediately determine what caused their death.
