The Lyon County Sheriff's Office says a Silver Springs man was arrested in connection with three homicides. 

Deputies say 48-year-old Scott Alan Baskette was the former boyfriend of 46-year-old Rebecca Driver. They say the two had separated four weeks ago after a 12-year relationship. 

Authorities say Driver's body as found by her children on Saturday night in Silver Springs. 

In the course of their investigation, sheriff’s deputies obtained information regarding Driver's family.

Deputies then responded to a second residence in Silver Springs to conduct a next-of-kin notification, when they found Driver's parents, 67-year-old Frank Evans and 68-year-old Coral Evans. Both were found shot to death. 

Driver leaves behind four children, ages 25, 18, 16 and 14. 

Baskette was taken into custody by the California Highway Patrol on Tuesday night near Willow Creek in Humboldt County. 

He is currently being held in the Humboldt County Correctional Facility pending extradition to Nevada.
