Stark County, Ohio, Sheriff George Maier said at the news conference that Brinkman dated the Johns' daughter in the past, but the two had a strained relationship.

A Bowling Green State University student was among three people found dead Sunday, police and BGSU officials said.

George Brinkman Jr., 45, was arrested Tuesday after a standoff in Brunswick, and is a suspect in the killings.

Stark County filed murder charges against Brinkman on Tuesday. Brinkman was the only person in the house at the time and did not say anything during the encounter, according to police.

OH police say a suspect in the deaths of a mother and her two adult daughters may also have been involved in a separate double homicide nearby.

George Brinkman, Jr. was charged Wednesday with three counts of aggravated murder, three counts of kidnapping and one count of tampering with evidence by the North Royalton Police Department.

Taylor Pifer was a fashion design student at Kent State. It is not clear if he has yet been charged in the three other deaths, in North Royalton, or if he has retained a lawyer or entered a plea.

The couple's son discovered their bodies after being unable to reach them by phone.

The bodies of 45-year-old Suzanne Taylor and her daughters, 21-year-old Taylor Pifer and 18-year-old Kylie Pifer, were found Sunday night in a home in North Royalton, about a 20-minute drive from Brunswick.

Stark County issued murder warrants for Brinkman's arrest Tuesday morning. Authorities say they apparently were shot.

Robert Safran says a stun gun was used to subdue the man, who had a handgun.
