SPANISH LAKE, Mo. (AP) — A St. Louis County man is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and other crimes in the shooting deaths of three people who were found dead inside at a home in the town of Spanish Lake.

Prosecutor Bob McCulloch on Friday announced charges against 27-year-old Demetrius Davis. He is jailed without bond and doesn’t yet have an attorney.

The bodies of Brandon Stephenson, Timothy Solano and Melissa Tierney were discovered late Wednesday. All three were shot in the head. Another woman was shot in the face but survived.

St. Louis County Police Officer Benjamin Granda says police have been called to the home numerous times, including for loud music complaints and an overdose.

Authorities have not disclosed a possible motive.
