GAINESVILLE, Texas (AP) — A man sought in the deaths of two people whose bodies were found in a burning car in North Texas has himself been found dead.

Authorities say the body of 37-year-old Mandeep Singh of Fort Worth was found Monday. It was found in a heavily wooded area of Cooke County near where a car was found burning Sunday night with two bodies inside.

Cooke County Sheriff Terry Gilbert says Singh had been wanted on a capital murder charge. He says an autopsy has been ordered to determine what caused his death.

Authorities haven't released the identities of those found dead in the back seat of the burning car near the Red River north of Muenster, about 18 miles northwest of Gainesville.
