Man arrested in deaths of 2 brothers in Sebastian County

Authorities in western Arkansas have arrested a man on suspicion of two counts of first-degree murder after two brothers were found dead in a Sebastian County home.

The Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office says a relative found the two men dead Monday morning at a home in the Washburn community. Capt. Philip Pevehouse says authorities arrested 34-year-old Stanley Ambrose Mazurek after he was spotted driving a vehicle that was reported stolen.

Mazurek is being held in the Sebastian County jail without bond on preliminary charges of first-degree murder, residential burglary and being a felon in possession of a gun. Jail records don’t list an attorney for him.

Pevehouse says autopsies are pending on the two slain men.
