CAMDENTON, Mo. (AP) -- A man accused of killing three southwest Missouri residents had been released from prison last February after serving 25 years for second-degree murder.
A probable cause statement released Monday says 51-year-old Morris McCabe, of Lebanon, Mo., had been dating a woman who had a previous relationship with one of the victims.
The woman says McCabe threatened her and her family if she followed through with a recent breakup.
The bodies of 45-year-old Donald Young, 53-year-old Donald Myers and 46-year-old Sally Amos were found Friday at a home near Stoutland, in Camden County. All three lived in Stoutland.
McCabe was arrested Saturday and was being held without bond in Camden County jail. He is scheduled for a hearing Thursday to review his counsel status, and did not have a lawyer as of Monday.
