JOHNSTON, R.I. (AP) - Police say charges could be filed as early as today in the deaths of two women and the abduction of a 2-year-old Rhode Island boy who is the son of one of the victims.

The boy is safe and two men are in custody after the boy's mother and another woman were found slain at their house Sunday.

Police say Isaiah Perez was found wandering around a Providence housing project miles from his home several hours after the slayings in Johnston, R.I., were discovered.

Johnston Deputy Police Chief Daniel Parrillo says the toddler was evaluated at Hasbro Children's Hospital and had no injuries. Johnston is about 10 miles from Providence.

Malcolm Crowell was arrested in Fall River, Mass., Sunday afternoon and Daniel Rodriguez, was arrested in Providence, where both men live.

Officials say one or both of the suspects could be charged in connection with the crimes today.

Investigators are working to determine the relationships among the boy, his abductor and the two homicide victims.
