Police in Madison are investigating a possible double homicide involving two young boys. The bodies of the two children, ages three and four years old, were found early this morning in a car parked near a business on Madison’s north side.
Police have detained a 28-year-old man in connection with the deaths. That person of interest was acquainted with the children, but is not their father.
A spokesman for Madison Police says the deaths are suspicious and are being treated as a double homicide. More information is expected to be released later today.
In a separate incident, Police in Madison have also arrested a young mother in connection with the death of her three-year-old son. 22-year-old Maria Castillo-Dominguez is facing a tentative charge of First Degree Reckless Homicide.
Detectives say the woman told them she struck her child on the morning of June 30th, and then his head hit a wall. The boy was taken to UW Hospital later that day with a head injury, after showing signs of physical distress. The child died on July third.
