Teens arrested in stabbing death

Two teens were arrested Friday in connection with the stabbing death of 70-year-old Pirkko Gaultney, in Minneapolis, as reported Friday by the Star Tribune.

The two teens, whose identities have not yet been released by police, are said to be brothers ages 15 and 16. The brothers were apprehended Friday at Robbinsdale Armstrong High School, in Plymouth.

The teens are the second set of arrests made in connection with Gaultney's slaying. A 15-year-old boy was arrested after his father had notified police that the boy was in possession of Gaultney's credit card.

KSTP reports that Gaultney's body was discovered in her home Wednesday night, dead from apparent stab wounds. Her home had apparent signs of forced entry, according to police.

The three teens held in the case have not yet been formally charged, police say that all three are acquainted with each other but have no gang affiliations.
