Conway police said today that a 14-year-old grandson is a suspect in the slayings  of Robert and Patricia Cogdell, both 66. He is being held in jail pending the filing of capital murder charges.

The youth was taken into custody soon after the discovery Wednesday of the Cogdells' bodies near their Conway home. Both had been shot. Robert Cogdell was director of public works in Maumelle.
