QUITMAN, Texas (AP) -

Two young sisters have been found dead in their East Texas apartment and an evidence tampering charge was filed against a man who allegedly was at the home.

Quitman police Chief Kelly Cole on Friday declined to release names of the girls, ages 1 and 3. Autopsies were ordered.

An unknown male on Thursday called police to report two children not breathing. Cole didn't provide details on the caller.

Witnesses told police they saw a man running from the apartment and throwing items into a trash bin.

Police arrested Thomas Wayne Liles of Quitman on a charge of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. Online jail records don't list an attorney for Liles, who was held Friday on $25,000 bond.

Cole declined to release further information on Liles.
