FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A 22-year-old man has been charged with capital murder in the deaths of three women whose bodies were found in their Fort Worth home.
Police issued a statement Wednesday saying Cedric D. McGinnis Jr. is being held on a $1.25 million bond. Authorities say McGinnis is the ex-boyfriend of one of the victims.
Family members of the victims had said after the bodies were discovered Tuesday that their throats had been slashed. But police said Wednesday that two died of a gunshot wound to the head while the third suffered stab wounds to her torso.
Authorities say McGinnis admitted to the killings under questioning and told detectives where evidence from the scene could be found.
The victims were 48-year-old Cynthia Serrano, her 21-year-old daughter April Serrano, and her 35-year-old sister Cathy de Leon.
