SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) — Texas authorities have finished taking DNA samples from all the children removed from a polygamist compound more than two weeks ago.

Roughly 500 samples were taken at the San Angelo Coliseum where authorities have been holding the children. The attorney general's office sent 10 technicians on Monday to begin taking samples ordered by the court as child welfare officials try to sort out the complicated family relationships at the compound.
