2 ex-cons held in throat-slash death of woman, 80

ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) - Police in a Detroit suburb say they've arrested two ex-cons in the killing of an 80-year-old woman, who was found in her home with her hands tied and her throat slashed.

Royal Oak police say they made the arrests about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday with help from U.S. marshals and Oakland County fugitive apprehension team members.

Police say there's evidence that Nancy M. Dailey was killed during a robbery of her house. They say a cousin found her body while checking on her welfare Sunday.

The Daily Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/sfO938 ) that police Lt. Thomas Goad says both suspects had felony parole flight warrants. Police say they don't believe anyone else was involved in the killing.

Other details on the suspects weren't released.
