LA TIMES: Husband/Wife Bodybuilders Sought in LV Slaying

LAS VEGAS -- Husband and wife bodybuilders Craig Titus and Kelly Ryan were being sought today in the slaying of a woman whose body was found last week in the trunk of a burned Jaguar sedan, authorities said.

Las Vegas police have not offered a motive for the killing or the name of the victim, who investigators think was a 28-year-old woman who had lived with Titus and Kelly in southwest Las Vegas.

Investigators were awaiting DNA results before releasing the woman's name. Her charred remains were found Dec. 14 in a burned 2003 Jaguar off state Route 160 southwest of the city.

Titus, 40, and Ryan, 33, face warrant charges of murder and third-degree arson, police said.

A third suspect, Anthony Gross, 23, remained today at Clark County jail following his arrest Wednesday in Las Vegas on charges of accessory to murder and third-degree arson. He was due to appear next Tuesday in a Las Vegas court.

The 5-foot-9-inch, 250-pound Titus won titles at the June 1996 National Physique Committee USA Championships, and competed in Mr. Olympia events.

He pleaded guilty in Louisiana in April 1995 to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute the party drug ecstasy, and served two years in jail for steroid-related offenses from 1997 to 1999.

Ryan is a past Fitness America and Fitness International winner and Fitness Olympia runner-up who worked as a loan officer for Silver State Mortgage in Las Vegas.

They married in June 2000, according to Clark County records

That's a shame about that Jag.  It was pretty nice-looking, an S-Type judging from the pic posted the other day.

Former Mr. Olympia and Wife: Murder Suspects. We have another bizarre murder case in Las Vegas (a body found in the trunk of burned out Jaguar) and the at large suspects are a married couple who are both renowned professional body builders, Craig Titus and his wife Kelly Ryan.  Titus, Mr. Olympia 2002, is, the piece states:
 
A former Texas high school wrestler who weighed 140 pounds at that time, Titus has been called "the bad boy of bodybuilding" by some publications as a result of his temper, his strong opinions and a stint in jail.

The article explains: Las Vegas police were hunting for the high-profile couple Wednesday in connection with a body found last week in the trunk of a torched 2003 Jaguar. The 5-foot-8-inch, 250-pound Titus and his chiseled 120-pound wife are both charged in arrest warrants with murder and third-degree arson, according to police. The victim, apparently, was a 28 year old woman who lived with the couple.

I am sure this is a story sick and juicy enough for the cable news channels; quick somebody alert Nancy Grace!

From the LA Times web blog...

When i beat Craig at the 1995 UYSA and he threw a temper tantrum on stage, I knew he some major problems with anger.
