Authorities have now identified the three people murdered in Harvey County, in central Kansas.

UPDATE: Authorities Identify Three Murder Victims in Harvey County

HESSTON, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a couple who were shot to death along with another man in rural central Kansas was facing drug and child endangerment charges. The Harvey County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday identified the victims as 33-year-old Travis Street, 37-year-old Angela Graevs and the couple's Newton friend, 52-year-old Richard Prouty. Their bodies and the couple's unharmed 18-month-old were found Sunday outside a home in a rural area south of Moundridge. The Wichita Eagle reports that Harvey County prosecutors in April filed eight charges each against Street and Graevs for alleged crimes occurring in June 2015. Seven charges were drug related and the eighth was aggravated child endangerment. Records show Street had earlier drug, theft and burglary convictions in Harvey and McPherson counties. Investigators have said the deaths were targeted homicides.

HESSTON, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say three people found shot to death outside a rural home in central Kansas were targeted and not victims of a murder-suicide. Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton says the victims found Sunday were a 37-year-old woman and two men aged 33 and 52. Walton says the two younger victims were a couple who were friends with the other man. Their names haven't been released. Walton says a passing motorist reported seeing bodies on the driveway of the home in Harvey County, and that there didn't appear to have been a struggle. The sheriff says an 18-month-old child found unharmed inside the home is now in the custody of relatives. There has been no word about arrests or charges. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is assisting in the investigation.
