TORONTO, Canada -- The ex-husband of a Canadian diplomat says one of their sons has been killed and another has been arrested in a Miami drug deal gone bad.

Germano Wabafiyebazu says his 17-year-old son Jean was killed when he went into a house to buy marijuana. His 15-year-old son Marc was arrested by police.

The boys' mother is Roxanne Dube, Canada's consul general in Miami.

Wabafiyebazu says his sons borrowed their mother's car, which had diplomatic license plates, to drive to the house.

Wabafiyebazu spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday. He said his ex-wife told him the details of the incident, which occurred Monday.

John Babcock, a spokesman for Canada's Foreign Affairs Department, said they are aware of reports of a serious incident involving a Canadian family in Miami and an investigation is underway.
