DALLAS (KRLD) - Two women arrested after a traffic stop near Waco lead authorities to a Plano house where a man and a woman were found dead.

A McLennan County deputy pulled over a vehicle on I-35  about 20 miles south of Waco on Sunday.

29-year-old Cynthia Wingate, let the deputy search the vehicle, according to sheriff Parnell McNamara.

The deputy found a small amount of meth and a bloody knife. He also found credit cards belonging to a man from Plano.

During the stop, a second car pulled over. The driver, 23-year-old Carmen Moreno, got out, and according to McNamara, was covered in blood.

"Both cars were registered to the man in Plano, so at that point, we knew something wasn't adding up. We called Plano police and told them what we had and suggested a welfare check on the address connected to the cars," McNamara says.

When Plano police checked the home on the 2300 block of Pebble Vale Drive, they found the bodies of a man and a woman, both in their 70's, inside the home.

Wingate and Moreno were arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of a dangerous drug, possession of a fraudulent ID and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
