STANLEY, N.C. (AP) — While parents grieve two children who died when they were buried under a wall of falling dirt, police are investigating possible charges against the father who was working in the two-story-deep hole when it collapsed.

Jordan Arwood, 31, of Stanley, was operating a backhoe Sunday night in the pit when the walls caved in on the children. The bodies of the two young cousins, 6-year-old Chloe Jade Arwood and 7-year-old James Levi Caldwell, were dug out Monday morning.
