North Royalton police said a mother and her two adult daughters were found dead Sunday night at a home in North Royalton

As Crime Online previously reported, Suzanne Taylor, 45, and her daughters, Taylor Pifer, 21, and Kiley Pifer, 18, were found murdered in their North Royalton, Ohio, home on Sunday.

"Most of it was done, face-to-face negotiations" through a window, Brunswick Police Lieutenant Robert Safran told the news station.

The three women likely died Saturday at their home on Ridge Road in North Royalton, police said.

He was taken into custody Tuesday after a standoff in Brunswick.

A 911 call from Suzanne Taylor's boyfriend, Scott Plymale, prompted the police to respond to her home. It appears they were shot, the sheriff said.

The North Royalton Police Department will continue the investigation into the deaths.

Maier, who issued an arrest warrant for Brinkman on two counts of murder, said Brinkman had been house-sitting for the Johns while they were on vacation.

George Brinkman, 48, is charged with three counts of aggravated murder, three counts kidnapping and one count of tampering with evidence, North Royalton Det.

A police standoff in Brunswick, Ohio, ended around 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning after eight hours of a tense siege.

Police in North Royalton wouldn't say what kind of relationship, if any, the suspect had with the slain mother and daughters.

Authorities in OH said late Monday that they were in a standoff at a home with the suspect in the triple murder of two college students and their mother. It states that Taylor Pifer's boyfriend went to her North Royalton home on Sunday after he hadn't heard from her since the day before. He reportedly knew the residents there, and one woman was present when he arrived, but she escaped unharmed.

The stepmother of the Pifer sisters told WOIO that Kylie was a Bowling Green College student and Taylor was a Kent State University student. Brinkman is charged in the deaths of a married couple in Lake Township - Rogell Eugene John, 71, and Roberta Ray John, 64.

It isn't the first time Brinkmann has been arrested with a previous criminal record for forgery and theft.

Detective Loeding said on Tuesday that Brinkman is the main suspect in all five deaths, all happening within the span of 48 hours in Ohio.
