LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Police have identified the victims and suspect in an attack on a suburban Atlanta family that left two young boys dead and two other family members injured.
Gwinnett County police Cpl. Jake Smith said Thursday police have arrested 28-year-old Antonio Cardenas-Rico and charged him with two counts of murder. He is being held without bond.
Police say 3-year-old Bradley Garcia and 1-year-old Edward Garcia were found stabbed to death at the home near Lawrenceville. The children's father, 23-year-old Elvis Garcia, and another 3-year-old brother were hospitalized with stab wounds. Smith says the 3-year-olds are twins.
Smith says the family knew Cardenas-Rico but police declined to disclose the nature of their relationship.
Police say the children's mother and an older sister weren't home at the time and were found unhurt.
