OMAHA (KWWL) -

A 5-year-old boy at the center of last week's AMBER Alert was found dead.

The body of Josue Ramirez-Marinero was discovered Monday along the Elkhorn River near Omaha, Nebraska.

The boy was reported missing after his 11-month old brother was found alive in a dumpster and his mother was found dead.

The 11-month-old is now back with his father and extended family.

The boy's older brother, Roberto Martinez-Marinero, was charged with first degree murder in the death of his mother, and more charges are pending.

His girlfriend, Gabriela Guevara, was also arrested this weekend. She is charged as an accessory.
