Round Rock police Chief Allen Banks said Monday that Miles and Bates were roommates.

He says it’s not clear how long Bates had been dead before her body was found.

Banks says investigators believe Miles took the woman’s daughters, 7-year-old Luluvioletta Mariposo Bandera-Margret and 14-year-old Lilianais Victoria Cake Griffith. An Amber Alert was issued Sunday for the girls.

The Hyundai Accent that Miles is believed to be driving was last seen in northern New Mexico or southern Colorado.
