CHICAGO (AP) — Authorities in Chicago have charged an 18-year-old boy in the stabbing deaths of a mother and her two daughters, who were found dead in their home on the city’s South Side.

Police say Denzel Pittman was charged early Wednesday with first-degree murder in the deaths of his girlfriend, 17-year-old Jade Hannah, Hannah’s mother, 43-year-old Stacy Cochran-Hill and Hannah’s younger sister, 11-year-old Joi Cochran.

All three were found dead with multiple stab wounds in their apartment in the city’s Morgan Park neighborhood late Monday.

Pittman is scheduled to appear in bond court Wednesday.
