KANSAS (AP) — A man has been charged in the deaths of his ex-girlfriend and two of her children whose bodies were found after a house fire in Kansas City, Kansas.
Prosecutors say 31-year-old Ismael Caballero is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of arson.
He is jailed on $1 million bond.
The charges stem from the discovery of the bodies of 32-year-old Yazmine Rodriguez-Santilla, 14-year-old Amerikha Rodriguez and 10-year-old Jean Carlos Rodriguez by crews battling a house fire early Monday.
Prosecutors allege in charging documents that he set fire to the house as well as to a minvian.
