MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin authorities have released the names of two young brothers found dead in a parked car.
The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office said Friday the boys are 3-year-old Kemaury McArthur and 4-year-old Kevin McArthur, both of Madison.
They were found dead in a parked car Wednesday morning in Madison and the boyfriend of the children’s mother was arrested.
The medical examiner’s office says preliminary autopsy results suggest the boys were “victims of homicidal violence,” and that additional testing is being done.
The office did not release how the boys died and police spokesman Howard Payne says that’s because police are still conducting interviews and don’t want to jeopardize the case.
Payne says they have not referred the case to the district attorney’s office but he expected that to be done early next week.
