Fire Damages House Where boy was Killed
The boy had Been Missing for More Than a Week
MILWAUKEE (AP) – Milwaukee police are investigating a fire at a home where a 15-year-old boy was brutally attacked and killed apparently over a stolen video game.
Officials say the fire Tuesday night could be arson.
Fire damage was limited.
Twenty-one-year-old Malik Terrell is charged with killing Dennis King at the home by attacking him with a hammer and stabbing him in the neck.
The boy’s burned remains were found in another house, which was abandoned, on Sunday.
He had been missing for more than a week.
Prosecutors say Terrell’s younger brothers believed King had something to do with the theft of their video gaming system.
