MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A 28-year-old Madison man is charged with killing his girlfriend’s two young sons.

According to the criminal complaint obtained by WISC-TV, David Hoem picked up 3-year-old Kemaury McArthur and 4-year-old Kevin McArthur from their father on July 5, saying he was taking them shopping, which was a regular occurrence.

Police say surveillance footage showed Hoem leaving a car in a parking lot after about 30 minutes.

Police found the boys dead inside about seven hours later.

Court documents say Hoem held the mother held against her will the day before and put her in a chokehold for about 30 seconds to a minute.

Hoem was charged Wednesday with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, false imprisonment and strangulation and suffocation.
