EL PASO COUNTY - Police say a 1-year-old and 3-year-old are dead after being stabbed late Wednesday night.


It happened in the 9500 block of East Woodmen Road northeast of Colorado Springs in El Paso County just after 11 p.m.

Responding deputies found 1-year-old Scarlett Gallagher deceased and 3-year-old Ryan Willhite with serious injuries. Ryan was transported to a local hospital where he later died.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office originally reported that the boy was born on Feb. 14, but later clarified it was Feb. 26.

An adult man, identified as 22-year-old Ethan Courrau, was transported in critical condition. He later died from his injuries. Courrau is not the father of the children but is believed to be the suspect. Police say the incident occurred in a trailer.
