2 BROTHERS SUFFOCATE IN FAMILY'S LINEN CHEST

Two young brothers suffocated in a linen chest, where their parents discovered them Wednesday morning, authorities said.

The parents woke up, initially couldn't find Anthony Leydig, 5, and 3-year-old Alyjah and began looking for them. State police said the chest in an upstairs bedroom had a combination lock that could have latched when the boys climbed inside.

Police said the boys were last seen at about 10 p.m. before the parents went to bed.

No charges have been filed in the deaths.
