      Double drowning claims the lives of brothers

      A family mourning the loss of two boys who were found in a pond on a family farm in Lake County.

      The brothers, 9-year-old Jethro Troyer and 7-year-old Leander Troyer, apparently drowned Thursday evening in a pond near their home in Lake Township.

      Lake County Undersheriff Dennis Robinson said the boys had clothes on and it doesn't appear they intended to go swimming. Robinson says the boys didn't come home on time, so their parents went looking for them and eventually found them in the pond.

      The boys were pronounced dead at the scene.
