Teen arrested in death of his 2 brothers in Utah
Police have arrested a teenager in the deaths of his two younger brothers, ages 4 and 10, in their family home in West Point, about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City.
Davis County Sheriff Todd Richardson said authorities believe the boys died from knife wounds. He said it appears the 15-year-old boy acted alone.
Formal charges have yet to be filed. The Associated Press is withholding the name of the boy because of his age.
Police said the boys had been left with their older brother while their mother took her other children to a dance recital. The boys' father is active duty military in another state.
Neighbors set up a makeshift memorial at the foot of the home's mailbox with colored balloons, monkey stuffed animals and flowers.
