Two Brazilian men accused of murdering a young Bolivian boy in June have been found dead in prison in Sao Paulo.

Local officials say the men are believed to have been poisoned by other inmates at the Santo Andre jail.

The five-year-old was reportedly shot in the head by masked robbers who complained he was crying too much during a robbery at his family's house.

The two men found dead in jail were named by the officials as Paulo Ricardo and Felipe Martins dos Santos Lima.

They had been awaiting trial and two other suspects are still reported to be on the run.
