Quadruple homicide Three women and a 5-year-old boy all members of the same family were found shot to death at a home in Toomsuba Mississippi Tuesday morning

MS authorities have arrested a man on charges that he killed his romantic partner, her child, her mother and her sister. All four were found Monday in their home in the Toomsuba community, near the Alabama state line about 15 miles east of Meridian.

Authorities who broke through the door to discover the bodies also found the sister's 3-year-old daughter uninjured inside. He says investigators continue to search the property for evidence.

The crime scene unit from the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation arrived late Tuesday morning to assist.

On Tuesday, authorities have said that a 5-year-old boy and three of his female family members were shot to death at a home in eastern Mississippi. Neighbors called police after they got no answer at the house Tuesday.

The Sheriff's Department says it's still early in the investigation, and right now they aren't sure of a motive.

Kavon D. McVay, 44, was charged with murder, capital murder and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, said Lauderdale County Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun. They haven't identified a suspect. The bodies were found inside the house.

It's unclear what prompted the shooting.

Lauredralde County Coroner Clayton Cobler said neighbors contacted the authorities Tuesday asking to perform a welfare check at a home on Butts Road because they saw no sign of the family on Monday, reported the station WTOK. A sheriff's deputy went to the home and found a shattered screen door with a bullet hole.
