HOUSTON — Court records show that a 49-year-old man has been charged with three counts of capital murder after authorities discovered the bodies of five children and three adults slain in a Houston-area home.

David Conley was being held Sunday in Harris County Jail. Bond has not yet been set for him. An attorney is not yet listed for him.

Court records show that one capital murder count covers multiple deaths. Another capital murder count is for a person under 6 years of age.

Authorities had been called to the home for a welfare check. Conley was taken into custody after surrendering to authorities.

By late Sunday morning, authorities had begun removing bodies from the home.
