Update: Teens accused in Killing of Lake Co. Couple, Escapees

Posted: Updated:

We have an update on a story we first brought you Saturday, regarding the deaths of a Lake County couple in Missouri.

The two teenage boys charged in their deaths apparently ran away from a nearby ranch for troubled teens, called "Lives Under  Construction."

A Missouri television station reports the two had been holed up in an unoccupied home in that neighborhood for several days.

The bodies of Paul and Margaret Brooks were discovered Thursday night in Galena, Missouri, in Stone County.

They were a retired couple who've spent their summers in Lake county for the last seven years.

They were staying at a relatives home, but were alone when they were killed.

A neighbor told the local sheriff, he spotted the teens breaking into a house near where the Brooks were staying.

He held them at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

The deputies then found the bodies of the Brooks, while checking the homes in the neighborhood.
