MILWAUKEE (AP) — A 27-year-old man and a 15-year-old youth were charged Monday with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of a 5-year-old boy whose body was found in a dumpster.
The two lived in the same home as Prince McCree, whose body was found Thursday, a day after he was reported missing, local news outlets reported.
Besides the homicide charge, the two face charges of physical abuse of a child, causing death and hiding a corpse. The 15-year-old also faces three counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety. The teen was charged in adult court. If convicted on all charges, both face possible life sentences.
The two were taken into custody last week.
Authorities have not said specifically how the 5-year-old died.
