HARRISBURG - Police arrested a Pennsylvania man who lived in the house with his son's dead body for several days before reporting it.

Eight year old Jarrod Tutko Jr. died in this house in Harrisburg sometime within the last week or so. Friday the boy's father told his wife that their son was dead. But police say only after the smell of decomposition got too strong.

And neighbors are wondering how it all happened and how the wife hadn't noticed before that.

Jarrod Tutko Sr. is in the Dauphin County Jail facing Child Endangerment, Abuse of a Corpse, and Concealing the Death of a Child Charges.
