View Comments ()



    A younger sibling of two Dallas brothers who police say were abducted and drowned has been ordered to remain foster care.

    A judge Tuesday decided the 14-month-old son of Naim Muhammad will remain under the authority of Child Protective Services. The boy's mother is allowed supervised visits.

    Muhammad is jailed on two counts of capital murder in the Aug. 22 deaths of his sons, who were ages 3 and 5. Police captured Muhammad hours after the children were snatched while walking to school with their mother on the older boy's first day of kindergarten.

    Police have said they believe Muhammad also tried but failed to abduct the toddler from a relative.
