PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police have made two arrests in connection with the beating death of a 17-year-old national champion boxer.

Police say Alexis Urbina was found unconscious and covered in blood in his family's south Phoenix home in September. He died of his injures two days later.

There was no obvious sign of forced entry into the house, but Urbina's family told police some of his boxing memorabilia was missing.

Sgt. Trent Crump confirms 22-year-old Robert Chavez and 23-year-old Joseph Corrales were arrested Friday night. Both were booked on charges of murder, burglary and trafficking in stolen property.

It wasn't immediately clear Saturday if they had attorneys.

Urbina won the 141-pound Youth Men's Division at the USA Boxing National Championships in April at Spokane, Wash. His family says he had Olympic aspirations.
