A man accused of killing a North Royalton woman and her two daughters was indicted on aggravated murder charges on Tuesday.

In a court appearance on Friday, Judge Brendan Sheehan revoked George Brinkman's bond, which was originally set at $75 million in Cuyahoga County. His next court appearance is July 5.

With no ties to the community and no permanent address, Sheehan said "I think this is the appropriate case to not have a bond."

Brinkman is charged with cutting mother Suzanne Taylor's throat with a knife, strangling 18-year-old Kylie Pifer with a telephone cord, and smothering 21-year-old Taylor Pifer with a pillow.
