Suspect detained in slayings of 2 Jamaica children

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) -- Police in western Jamaica have detained a suspect in the slayings of two children whose bodies were found in a remote wooded area.

Investigators with the Jamaica Constabulary Force said Sunday that the man is believed to have abducted and murdered the youngsters about two weeks ago in the Martha Brae area of northern Trelawney parish.

The 10-year-old girl and 12-year-old boy were reported missing after they left a beach outing with a strange man. They went to the beach on July 13 with six other children and one adult.

Their bodies were found two days later in a pond by local men who were trapping crabs.
