RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Fremont County authorities have arrested two boys from Riverton in connection with the death of a man and the apparent beating of a woman this week. The boys, ages 15 and 16, were arrested on Thursday evening. They've each been charged with one count of second-degree murder and one count of attempted second-degree murder. Their names were withheld because of their age.

Fremont County Coroner Ed McAuslan on Friday identified the homicide victim as 25-year-old David Ronald Moss, Jr. A preliminary investigation shows he died from blunt force trauma to the head. The unidentified woman was listed in critical condition at a hospital on Friday morning. The two victims were found together on the Rails to Trails pathway north of Riverton on Wednesday.
