Franklin Man Arrested in Connection With Two Bodies Found in Burn Pit

A Walworth County man is under arrest in connection with the deaths of two bodies found in a burn pit in East Troy.  Franklin police say a 43-year-old local business owner was taken into custody Thursday on suspicion of first-degree intentional homicide.  Officers say the arrest is related to an arson investigation by Milwaukee police that resulted in the report of two missing persons.  Evidence led detectives to a farmhouse the suspect had leased for hunting.  Authorities are working to identify the remains from the burn pit.  Charges are pending against the suspect in multiple jurisdictions.
