Topeka homicide scene burglarized

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Topeka police have arrested two men suspected of burglarizing a home where three people were found shot to death on Sunday.

WIBW-AM reports (http://bit.ly/1eWNyYH ) that police responded to a report of a burglary in progress at the house at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday and found two people in the backyard with items taken from inside.

The suspects are 23 and 29 years old and live in Topeka. Police Capt. Scott Conklin could not say if there was any connection to the homicides.

Police are still investigating the deaths of 34-year-old Tamesha Lee, 43-year-old Eric Avery and 56-year-old Marvin Louis Woods. Their bodies were found after Avery's 45-year-old sister, Carla Jean Avery, was found wounded outside a restaurant. She died Tuesday.
