LILLINGTON, N.C. (AP) — Three people — including an infant — have been found dead in a central North Carolina county home, and authorities say they’ve arrested a suspect in what’s being described by the local sheriff as a triple homicide.

Multiple news outlets report that 22-year-old Jacelyn Perkins, 20-year-old Jasmine Perkins and the unidentified child were found dead early Friday evening in the western Harnett County home, near the Barbecue community. Harnett Sheriff Wayne Coats said deputies also discovered another child was unharmed.

The Harnett sheriff’s office says they’ve issued first-degree murder warrants for a suspect. WTVD reports Harnett County deputies have charged 24-year-old Kareem Daquan Taylor with three counts of first-degree murder following the incident. Officials say Taylor was apprehended at 207 Constitution Way in Cameron around 11:20 p.m. Saturday.
