Police Give Update On Slavic Village Murders

Cleveland - The man who killed two adults and two children, who were found Tuesday morning, knew the victims.

That from Cleveland Police, who held a press conference outside the crime scene off East 63rd street Thursday afternoon.

26-year-old Armond Johnson reportedly shot his baby's mother, Takeyra Collins, and then tried to set the home on fire, leading to the deaths of his six-year-old son Armond Johnson Jr and two-year-old Aubree Stone.

Officers say that's when David Cousin Jr, a neighbor, arrived home from work and was shot in the field execution style next to the home.

"How could you kill her because she didn't want to be with you? Then take your own kids life? He's a monster," says Elijah, cousin of Cousin Jr.

Elijah, the cousin of David Cousin Jr, goes to the spot where his cousin was murdered.

Johnson is charged with Aggravated Murder, and will make his initial court appearance Friday morning at 8:30.
