FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Police in Fergus Falls say two people are under arrest in the death of a 6-year-old boy.

Authorities say the boy was unconscious and not breathing when he was brought to a hospital Monday morning. Attempts to revive him at the hospital failed.

Police say there is a “clear indication” that the boy had been a victim of neglect and abuse. A sibling who was found to be living in the same home was taken into protective custody.

Authorities arrested a 40-year-old woman and a 44-year-old man, both from Fergus Falls. The two are in the Otter Tail County Jail awaiting charges.

The boy’s name has not been released. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is also investigating.
