Man charged with murder after 3 deaths in Harnett County home

LILLINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A man has been jailed after being arrested in the deaths of two women and an infant child discovered in a central North Carolina home.

The Harnett County Detention Center confirmed Sunday that 24-year-old Kareem Daquan Taylor has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder and probation violations. He was held without bond awaiting a Monday court appearance.

Multiple news outlets reported that Taylor was arrested Saturday night in Cameron, after warrants had been issued for him.

The sheriff's office said 22-year-old Jacelyn Perkins, 20-year-old Jasmine Perkins and the unidentified child were found dead early Friday evening in a home near the Barbecue community. Another child was unharmed. Authorities say the two women were sisters.

The jail had no information on an attorney for Taylor.
