STOUTLAND — A Lebanon, Mo., man has been arrested in connection with the slayings of three people found dead in a Camden County home.

Camden County Sheriff Dwight Franklin says 51-year-old Morris McCabe was arrested Saturday night in Lebanon on suspicion of three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of armed criminal action.

The arrest is in connection with the deaths of 45-year-old Donald Young, 53-year-old Donald Myers and 46-year-old Sally Amos, all of Stoutland, who were found Friday at a home near Stoutland.

Franklin says McCabe was being held without bond in Laclede County Jail. A person who answered the phone at the jail said he didn't know if McCabe had an attorney.

The sheriff says no motives for the killings have been announced.
