$75 million bond set for alleged murderer of 5 people

PARMA, Ohio (AP) — Bond has been set at $75 million for a man charged with killing five people, including a mother and her two college-age daughters.

George Brinkman Jr. appeared Thursday in Parma on aggravated murder charges for the deaths of Suzanne Taylor and her daughters, Taylor Pifer, 21,  and Kylie Pifer, 18,  at their North Royalton home. Their bodies were found Sunday.

The judge read aloud the charges, which revealed that Suzanne Taylor's throat was slit, Kylie Pifer was strangled with a phone cord and Taylor Pifer was smothered. 

Brinkman didn't enter a plea. A grand jury will consider whether to indict Brinkman.

Brinkman was charged Tuesday in Stark County in the deaths of Rogell Eugene John, 71, and Roberta Ray John, 64.
