TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- A Tacoma, Wash., woman came home to find a dead body in her house and police later arrested her 14-year-old and 16-year-old sons.

Police spokesman Mark Fulghum said the woman found her sons inside the house Friday afternoon with a dead male who appeared to be in his teens.

Fulghum says the woman drove to a nearby police station to report the body. When officers followed her home, the body had been moved to an outside recycling bin.

Police questioned the woman and her sons before arresting the boys for investigation of first-degree murder.

The victim was not immediately identified. The spokesman says the body showed obvious signs of trauma. No motive was immediately known.

Detectives and a crime scene crew searched the house Friday night.
