Boys, 3 and 4, found dead in parked car in Madison, Wis.; mother's boyfriend, 28, arrested
MADISON, Wis. (AP) ' Wisconsin police say two young boys have been found dead in a parked car, and their mother's 28-year-old boyfriend has been arrested.
Police spokesman Joel DeSpain says the 3- and 4-year-old brothers were found early Wednesday morning and the case is being treated as a double homicide.
Police said the boys' 22-year-old mother arrived at police headquarters Tuesday afternoon and reported she had an altercation a day earlier with her 28-year-old boyfriend. She later reported the children missing after speaking with the children's biological father, who said they were with the boyfriend.
Police say the suspect surrendered at the police station and was arrested on a parole violation.
The Associated Press is not identifying the boyfriend because he has not yet been formally charged. Police have not named the mother.
