MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Law enforcement officers in western Montana have a 'person of interest' they want to interview after a box containing the bones and teeth of three children were found in the shed of a Missoula home in September. A cleaning crew found the box when a tenant was evicted from the property. Missoula Police Sgt. Travis Welsh tells the Missoulian the person they want to interview is not a suspect. The remains will be tested to see if DNA can be extracted.

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A judge has ordered the continued detention of a Montana man authorities captured after he fled to Mexico while facing charges of illegally exporting handguns. U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch on Tuesday ordered 37-year-old Daniel Doyle of Kalispell to remain in federal custody pending further proceedings. Doyle was captured last month in Sonora, Mexico and returned to Montana to face 44 counts of illegal gun exports and related crimes. He's pleaded not guilty.
