WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Police are investigating after the body of a small boy was discovered encased in concrete inside a rental home in Wichita, Kansas.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the landlord was cleaning the house Saturday when he found a concrete structure and noticed an odor coming from it.  Police removed the structure and discovered the remains of a 3-year-old boy inside.

An Associated Press reporter has left phone and email messages with Wichita police for information about the structure.  Police say a 40-year-old man and 36-year-old woman who lived at the home were arrested last week on separate charges associated with a child custody case. Both are being held in the Sedgwick County Jail.

Police say they have tentatively identified the child.  No additional information has been released.
