MURRAY, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky man has been charged with murder and other crimes in the deaths of four relatives whose bodies were found after a fire.

Kentucky State Police said Monday in a news release that 21-year-old Pascasio Y. Pacheco Arellano of Mayfield is charged with four counts of murder and one count each of first-degree burglary, first-degree arson and tampering with physical evidence.

Arellano is a nephew of 29-year-old Bulmaro Arellano, who was found dead inside the home that burned Tuesday in Murray. Bulmaro Arellano was found with his wife, 24-year-old Marisol Hernandez, and their two children, who were about 5 and 1½ years old.

Police say preliminary autopsy results indicate Hernandez and Arellano died as a result of gunshot wounds, while it’s believed the children died of smoke inhalation.
