(CNN) — A 15-year-old Utah boy was arrested in connection with the slayings of his two younger adopted brothers, ages 4 and 10, who were apparently stabbed to death in their home, authorities said Thursday.
The oldest brother — the eldest of six children — was a natural child of the family and was baby-sitting his two younger siblings while the mother was out of the home with the other children, Sheriff Todd Richardson told reporters Thursday. The father, who’s in the military, was in Alabama.
The mother called 911 Wednesday evening after finding her 4-year-old son dead in the home in West Point, Utah. Police then found the 10-year-old son dead in the lower part of the house, but they weren’t sure whether the oldest child was a victim or a suspect, Richardson said.
Hours later, near midnight, police found the oldest brother miles away walking with blood stains on the street. The boy spoke “pretty bluntly” with investigators, who are trying to determine a motive, the sheriff said. He wasn’t carrying any weapons, though police have found two weapons believed to have been used in the slayings, Richardson said.

BRUNSWICK, Ga. -
New evidence has been released for a teenager charged with murder after a baby was fatally shot in the face on a Brunswick street.
Attorney Randy Reep and Channel 4′s Tim Pulliam looked through a 77-page inventory list of evidence, from a baby bottle to a gun cleaning kit.
But Reep said one of the most interesting items collected were DVDs, specifically the one mentioned on page 41. The DVD contains a recorded reenactment of the incident at the scene by 15-year-old suspect Dominique Lang.
Antonio Santiago “There very well could be a confession on it. Why that would not be released at this point, I would be guessing,” said Reep. “I would guess there’s additional arrests that are coming, accessory after the fact or build a case against other people.”
Reep said on page 20, there’s also other recordings inside a police car of both Lang and alleged 17-year-old shooter, De’Marquise Elkins.
Video that could also be significant.

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -
An 18-year-old Glynn Academy student died early Wednesday morning after attending a senior party on St. Simons Island, just hours before he was supposed to graduate, according to Glynn County police.
Paramedics responded about 4 a.m. to a 911 call about a medical emergency at a home on 12th Street East for a teenager who may have drunk too much alcohol, was not breathing and had no pulse. Other students at the party say the teen — identified as William Dalton Collins — had also hit his head earlier and gone to bed.
Investigators say the students attempted CPR until rescue workers arrived and rushed Collins to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
County police are investigating the death, and the medical examiner will determine the cause of death. Friends say Collins had a history of concussions, so hitting his head the night of his death may have contributed, but it’s too early to say.

Another was injured to a far less serious degree and taken for medical treatment and is expected to survive.

His age is not immediately known but he is believed to be a young man. The second victim is believed to have suffered a wound on or near his elbow. His condition was described as stable.
