WASHINGTON — Police have released four people who were taken into custody with the man charged with murdering a family and their housekeeper at a mansion in Washington, D.C.

Daron Wint once worked for Savvas Savopoulos.

Wint was arrested and charged with murder Thursday night.

He is being held without bail.

Police did not say why the other suspects were released but still believe Wint had help from others while holding the family hostage.

Police say Wint held the victims hostage for more than a day last week, until they came up with $40,000, then killed them and set fire to the house.
