A Michigan prosecutor says investigators have DNA evidence linking the deaths of two of four children killed during a 13-month period in the 1970s.

Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper said Tuesday that DNA tests fond hairs found during the investigation of the deaths of 11-year-old Timothy King and 12-year-old Mark Stebbins came from the same person. They're seeking tips from the public in the case.

Cooper says the hairs mark the first evidence linking any of the four children slain in what's known as the Oakland County child killer case.

The children were killed between February 1976 and March 1977. Other slain children were 10-year-old Kristine Mihelich and 12-year-old Jill Robinson.
