A judge has set a $75m bond on a man’s charges for murdering a mother and her two daughters- three of the five he had killed.

The Incident

A judge has charged George Brinkman Junior, an Ohio man who killed five people, with a $75 million bond for three of his victims- a mother and her two daughters.

Brinkman has been accused of murdering Suzanne Taylor and her two daughters, Taylor Pifer, 21, and Kylie Pifer, 18, in their home in North Royalton. The three bodies were found on Sunday. The mother’s throat was reportedly slit and stabbed at least once, her daughter, Kylie, was strangled with a telephone cord, and her other daughter, Taylor, was smothered. A police officer said, all three of them were “cold to the touch” and were all “face down in bed all lying right next to one another.”

A grand jury will be deciding whether or not Brinkman will be indicted.

According to Marcia Taylor, Suzanne’s mother, Brinkman had graduated with her daughter in highschool and were friends for a long time. There was no apparent romantic relationship between them.

“We had meals together. He spent holidays here,” she said. “I mean, he was a friend. So I don’t know what made him so angry.”

“I’m just devastated. I don’t understand it. I don’t understand why somebody would do something like this.” she said.

His Other Murders

On Tuesday, Brinkman was also charged for murdering an elderly couple, Rogell John, 71, and Roberta John, 64, in their home at Lake Township. According to authorities, the suspect was robbing them and shot them both. Their bodies were found on Monday.

According to George Maier, the County Sherriff, Brinkman worked for them. He used to watch over their house when they were on vacation. Cleveland.com also reported that Brinkman used to date their daughter.
