Troubled Ky. teen accused in guardians' slayings

EDMONTON, KY (AP) - Police and family members say a Kentucky couple who took in an incorrigible 15-year-old relative now accused of killing them had put their foot down when he wanted to date a 12-year-old girl.

An adult son found Gary and Barbara Holloway dead in their bed Tuesday.

Soon after, police issued an Amber Alert for the teen who was living with them and for the girlfriend the couple had forbidden him to see.

Police say they feared both might be in danger.

A day later, in one of the strangest cases to arise from the system designed to find abducted children, the 15-year-old was charged with murdering his cousin and her husband, who welcomed him into their home three months ago when his mother said she could no longer control him.
