KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 38-year-old man has been charged in connection with the deaths of three people who were found dead last week in a home in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Jackson County prosecutors office announced Monday that Rahman M. Muhammad of Kansas City faces three counts of second-degree murder and three counts of armed criminal action after he was linked to the slayings by investigators, the Kansas City Star reported.

Prosecutors said he is a relative of the three victims.

Police discovered the bodies Thursday after another concerned family member called police after not hearing from the people in the home.
