JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — A 24-year-old man is accused of killing three people in a house in Florida on the night of the Super Bowl.

Christopher Vasata will face a judge in Palm Beach County on Tuesday. He’s charged with three counts of first-degree murder for the Feb. 5 deaths of 20-year-old Kelli Doherty, 24-year-old Brandi El-Salhy and 25-year-old Sean Henry.

Jupiter Police Chief Frank Kitzerow told reporters Monday night that the case continues to be active. He said the victims were in the back yard of the home when they were attacked. A short time after their bodies were discovered, police found Vasata about a mile from the home. He had also been shot. Since the slayings, he’s been recovering.

Police say another person may have been involved in the shootings.
