Honors student and track team star, 15, 'stabbed his adopted brothers, 4 and 10, to death at their home while their mother was out at a dance recital'

A 15-year-old honors student has been arrested on suspicion of murder after his two adopted younger brothers, aged four and 10, were found stabbed to death in their home.

The teenager was tasked with looking after his brothers, who have not been named, on Wednesday while their mother was attending a dance recital with their other siblings.

But when she returned to the home in West Point, Utah a few hours later, she discovered the body of her four-year-old son on the floor and frantically called 911.

She told officers she believed her 10-year-old son was missing with his older brother, but when police arrived on the scene, they also found the body of the 10-year-old.
