TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Topeka police say two men who were arrested while burglarizing a house tied to an unsolved quadruple homicide didn't have anything to do with the slayings.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports police found a woman and two men shot to death inside a Topeka home on Dec. 1, and found a fourth victim behind a business hours later.

Police received a call around 4 a.m. Dec. 4 indicating someone was inside the home where the killings had occurred four hours after it had been released as a crime scene. Officers found two men in the backyard with items from inside the house.

Both pleaded guilty to burglary and were sentenced earlier this year. Police say the burglary was not related to the homicides in the same home.
