Two charged with murder following discovery of 5-year-old’s body in dumpster

MILWAUKEE, WI – A man of 27 years and a minor aged 15 have been charged with first-degree intentional homicide following the tragic death of a 5-year-old boy. The child’s lifeless body was discovered in a dumpster last week.

The accused individuals shared a residence with the young victim, identified as Prince McCree. The boy was reported missing a day before his body was found, stirring concern among local residents and media outlets.

If found guilty, the two suspects could face life imprisonment. However, the charges against them extend beyond homicide. They are also accused of physically abusing a child resulting in death and concealing a corpse. The teenager faces additional charges of first-degree recklessly endangering safety and is being tried in adult court.

The suspects were apprehended last week, but authorities have not released details about the cause of the young boy’s death.
