HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — A man arrested on aggravated murder charges in the slayings of his wife, her parents and her aunt in an apartment home has been returned to Ohio from Connecticut.

Butler County Jail records show 37-year-old Gurpreet Singh was booked into the jail early Friday morning.

Singh had been arrested July 2 in Branford, Connecticut. The Butler County prosecutor said afterward he planned to take the case to a grand jury.

He had called 911 on April 28 to say he found the four "on the ground and bleeding" in a West Chester apartment where he also lived, some 20 miles north of Cincinnati.

Each of the four killed had at least two gunshot wounds in the head.

A message was left Friday for Singh's attorney, Charles H. Rittgers.
