"The world is a darker place without her. Taylor and Kylie you were my daughters and I loved looking out for you".

North Royalton police identified the victims, who were Taylor Pifer, 21, Kylie Pifer, 18, and their mother Suzanne Taylor, 45.

Police have ruled out a murder-suicide, Loeding said.

Crisp asked Brinkman to surrender, but Brinkman later accused her of working with police and said she "stabbed [him] in the back", the news channel's story says.

Court records show no violent history for Brinkman in either Stark or Cuyahoga counties.

Suzanne's boyfriend said he'd delivered flowers to the house on Saturday but did not see anyone inside at the time.

Police said the three women may have died the day before their bodies were found. It appeared the Johns had been shot, Sheriff Maier said on Tuesday.

To date police have yet to announce what relation Brinkmann had to the murdered woman or how he knew them.

Told Brunswick Police Lt. Robert Safran upon the man's arrest, "That was some good work by our tactical officers". Brinkman previously was in a relationship with the couple's daughter, sheriff's deputies said.

According to The Daily Mail, Brinkman barricaded himself inside the house. Brinkman was taken into custody after a almost 9 hour standoff in Brunswick that ended around 5:30 a.m. The police traced Brinkman using the Global Positioning System signal on his cellphone. When she realized who she was talking to, she contacted police immediately in an attempt to help aid their efforts to bring him into custody.

Brinkman was reportedly armed and threatening to kill himself.

The father of the two murdered women in North Royalton is expressing his condolences.
