EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach says he wants a report on the circumstances surrounding two 14-year-olds accused of killing two people after disappearing from a group home.
RCMP and Children’s Services officials are meeting to discuss what happened when the boys walked away from the facility east of Edmonton run by Bosco Homes.
The premier says the youths were there because they don’t have family to look after them.
One of the boys faces two charges of first-degree murder; the other faces two counts of being an accessory after the fact.
A 68-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman who lived on the same rural property near Sherwood Park, Alta., were found dead Monday.
The teens were arrested in a stolen truck that police believed belonged to one of the victims.
