Police say the father of two 1-year-olds found dead in a suburban Detroit apartment is being held while they investigate the deaths.
Allen Park police say police responded to a 911 call about 2 a.m. Tuesday from a man saying the children drowned in a bathtub.
Police say they found Ella Stafford and Jonathon Sanderlin dead at the apartment in Detroit's southern suburbs.
The toddlers have different mothers. Ella was 15 months old, and Jonathon was 13 months old.
The father was being held at police headquarters and hadn't been charged Tuesday afternoon.
Police are working with the medical examiner's office to determine the causes of death.
