LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prosecutors in Nevada filed additional charges and told a judge a grand jury may review evidence that a Las Vegas man held a woman and her children captive, killed her 4-year-old son and hid the body in a garage freezer.

Brandon Toseland's defense attorney, Scott Coffee, told reporters Monday that he wants to review evidence and hear how the boy died.

Toseland was arrested Feb. 22 after a 7-year-old schoolgirl gave her teacher notes saying her mother was being held captive and thought the girl's brother was dead.

Coffee acknowledged that police found a large hole dug in recent weeks in Toseland's small backyard. He said Toseland intends to plead not guilty to murder, kidnapping and child abuse charges.
